Tom Lewis artist 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.
The ideas for characters come from a mixture of random doodling and a fascination with really weird people. Both of which became obsessions whilst working part time in an Arts and Crafts shop to fund his painting habit. The background accompanying each character forms part of the epic story that lives inside Tom’s head.
Tom works with a variety of techniques and processes to achieve the end result, be it a Gicleé 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.
In 2010 Tom Lewis has become one of the most sought after urban artists.
