Born 1995, London

Lives and works in London, UK


Lewis Brander was born in London UK in 1995. He grew up and was educated in the UK and studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, graduating in 2018. He lives and works in London. An observer of the shifts in natural light in both Northern and Southern Europe, the colour of the sky has become a constant reference in Lewis Brander's paintings since returning to London from Greece three years ago. All located within urban spaces, visual indicators of London and Athens’ built environments are omitted from the paintings, leaving any specific marker of place to their title. By not making direct reference to the built environment, the artist’s own interests in post-war American abstraction become counterpoints to works which appear at first to fit within the legacy of English Romantic landscape painting. The interplay between gesture, colour and ground and the push and pull of representation and abstraction means that often our own initial associations with a landscape is cultural. His first solo exhibition was with Vardaxoglou Gallery London in 2022. In 2023 he was awarded a place on the inaugural Tracey Emin Artist Residency at the Tracey Emin Foundation in Margate UK. He is represented in London by Vardaxoglou Gallery.
