Scottish-born; Lewis grew up in Dumbarton before moving to Dundee to pursue a contemporary art degree in which he graduated with a first-class honor in 2020. Lewis won both the James Guthrie Orchar Memorial Prize and the Farquar Reid Trust Prize during the degree show, as well as being selected for the Freelands Painting Prize. After being awarded the William S Phillips award, a bursary for his tuition fees, Lewis continued his studies at DJCAD graduating with merit in MFA Art & Humanities in 2021.
A student of Yoga and meditation, these practices greatly inform Lewis's work, which explores notions of the self in relationship to technology. Simultaneously looking inwards towards his own conscious experience and out towards our humanity as a whole, Lewis’ work questions our collective ontology in an everchanging, technologically advanced world.
