Lewis Suzuki was born in Los Angeles, California in 1920. An important figure in the watercolor movement known as the "California Style", Suzuki studied at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, and the Art Students League in New York City during the late 1930's, and 1940's.
Since the 1950's he has resided and painted in the San Francisco, California area. Here he specialized in cityscapes, and still life floral works, done with the wet-into-wet watercolor painting style.
