Lewandowski was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended the Layton School of Art where he ultimately became director. After pursuing his career as a muralist in New York under the Federal Arts Project, he became a precisionist painter who, through the use of simple line, pure color and bold shapes, abstracted scenes and objects of the industrial and mechanical world.
