James Kelewae, aka Luv One is a street artist and aerosol muralist from New Jersey.  Born outside Philadelphia and raised in the Quad Cities and Chicago, he has lived on the east coast for most of his adult life.  A graduate of the School of Visual Arts illustration department and a member of Albus Cavus and S.A.G.E. artist collectives, Luv One’s murals can be seen across New Jersey, and in Yonkers, NY, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and Chicago.  His work has also appeared in numerous galleries, including the Micro Museum in Brooklyn, NY, the Flat Iron Building in NYC, the Art Gallery Kafe in Chicago, the Guerilla Gallery in Newark and Gallery 125 in Trenton.
