THe Artist


Marcelle D. Ward (aka The BLACK LEX LUTHOR) is an artist, poet, writer and occasional philosopher. He is perpetually inspired by other artists, social media, music, science fiction and horror.  He also enjoys comics and cartoons, especially anime.   

His art is heavily influenced by hip-hop culture, video games, horror stories and comic books. These themes are pervasive and inescapable. He supposes this is because of the idea that they open doors to new worlds and concepts, unleashed from the minds of people just like himself.  

It is his hope that artistic creation will overwhelm his life. In his head are countless ideas, stories and creations jockeying for position. 

He resides in Michigan with his wife and children.
