Augustus Turner

Augustus, born an raised in the Cleveland area and a proud graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in illustration/painting.  After many years of experience , awards and exhibitions Augustus is a seasoned professional artist. His main focus is using art as a medium to inspire, motivate and educate others through a combination of color, texture and symbolism.  Over 20 years of experience his exhibitions have been housed in institutions such as the Agnon in Beachwood, University hospital, Cleveland State University and the East Cleveland public library.

As far back as Augustus can remember art has always been something fascinating and full of excitement for him.  This is the reason Augustus is so passionate about his life as an artist.  Whenever he is commissioned to do a project he believes in the concept of pleasing the client as much as possible because that client will send you other potential clients.  And the joy of a satisfied client is infectious and keeps him grounded.

While Augustus uses a variety of materials and processes in each of his projects his methodology is consistent.  Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter, this helps determine the material or medium of the work.  Augustus is honored and blessed to have such a gift and understands that his gift is to be shared with others, this shows that he is interested in the lines of destiny that shape our lives.  For interest in engaging Augustus in a Graffiti HeArt mural project, contact Graffiti HeArt at
