BIOGRAPHY

Lobyn Hamilton

Walter Lobyn Hamilton (b. 1985) is a self-taught visual artist who creates representational collages with vinyl records and album covers. He is known for his renderings of political and social figures, social movements, as well as cultural and musical icons. 

Lobyn found his first artistic influences in the posters his father hung in his room, and through the early Saturday morning visits to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Many of the icons and musicians who adorned his walls would later become muses for works created through his vinyl expression. He started collecting vinyl records at the age of 15 – after receiving a turntable for Christmas – and has since amassed a collection of over 30,000 lps; his love for vinyl records and the artists recorded on them is undeniable and unwavering.

In recent years, Lobyn’s works have been recognized in publications including The New Yorker, Complex Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, and the IRAAA. He has pieces several notable private and public collections, including the Indiana State Museum, ADIDAS, Kanye West, Nas; a work by the artist has been featured in each season of Fox’s hit show Empire
