Lewis’ work is synonymous with music - he’s illustrated some of the most beautiful vinyl releases in recent years with his unique, colourful and hand-made style.
We’ve long admired his work for its exciting use of colour and wild compositions. His work draws on a multitude of influences from art and design history, from Cubism to 1970’s psychedelia, to Nigerian Afrobeat and Russian Constructivism.
Lewis studied English at the University of Nottingham. With a passion for African and tropical music (and with some mates), he introduced the city to leading international acts like the New York based Antibalas.
Alongside the exhibition of his work in the Lane pop up shop, we’ll have a selection of prints for sale which we think make a great ‘totally tropical’ addition to any home.
Alongside the exhibition, there will be a Q&A as part of the Revolution and Change Event: Lagos 77 on Friday 22 January, curated by Lane Director Joff Casciani.
