Tom Lewis is a premium degree pencil wizard, and mouse master of the first order. Born in Birmingham in 1979, he is at present working as an artist and illustrator in the east end of London. Tom works with a variety of techniques and processes to achieve the end result, be it a Giclee print, canvas or digital file. Usually starting with a pencil, he uses marker pens, biros, acrylic paint, aerosol cans, airbrushes, varnish, cardboard, digital camera, computer and fingers. Though not necessarily in that order.
This is the world created by Tom Lewis. Blending elements of ancient mythology, traditional oriental design and contemporary street art, his style is unique and instantly recognisable. Each piece adds to the epic patchwork narrative that exists inside Tom’s head, tip toeing the line between logical meaning and beautiful nonsensical chaos.
Tom’s paintings and prints have been exhibited worldwide including Hong Kong and New York. Following an exciting, if surreal appearance on The Young Apprentice in 2010, his exceptional works earned appreciation from a rapidly expanding fan base.
