Artist Bio

Jack Lewis is an Illustrator, Painter and Printmaker from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. From a young age Jack has been a great lover of history and his home in the valleys.  His work often focuses around the exploration of these two pillars. Seeking to highlight the uniqueness and beauty of Wales, its history, culture, story’s, people, places, and language to the wider world. 

Studying Illustration Animation at the renowned Kingston School of Art in London, He found many opportunities to explore his practice and how he could communicate through it. Most notably at this time Jack Created his graphic novel “Teulu”, which recounted his family’s experiences through the Aberfan disaster using bold, dynamic black and white ink illustration, translated in both Welsh and English. His work illustrating Tolworth Tower was also placed into the Brill collection at Kingston Museum as part of an ongoing effort to archive the landscape of the area, alongside many other artists stretching back more than 50 years. 

Jacks work is inspired by many varying artists from Mike Mignola, Creator of the comic series Hellboy to Kyffin Williams and impressionist painters like Monet. Most importantly to his work, is not the Realism or likeness of a piece, although it is important itself, but the feeling and mood it invokes, the response the viewer gets from the piece, not what it presents.
