Hiroko Lewis

Japanese artist Hiroko Lewis is based in Sussex, where she creates semi-abstract mindscapes inspired by her local environment. After graduating with a degree in Fine Art from Kanazawa College of Art, she pursued a career as artist, porcelain pattern designer, and illustrator in Japan, where she exhibited widely, including at the prestigious National Art Centre in Tokyo.

Since moving to Brighton in 2011, Hiroko Lewis has expanded her media repertoire to include metal leaf and patination. She writes: “I am fascinated by the glow of “haku” metal materials and patination which add extra dimensions and colours, allowing a degree of expression that normal paints cannot achieve. I “go with the flow” of these chemical reactions to create patinas which are then integrated with oil paint and other traditional media to form a collaboration between unrestrained nature and control.”

Her work has been displayed at various venues including the ING Discerning Eye at the Mall Galleries in London, the Kimberly Clark corporate HQ and a number of Brighton Artists Open House festivals. “Resonance,” a major commission executed in oil, metal leaf, and patination for law firm Cripps LLC, was completed in February 2017. Comprising ten panels, and measuring 1.5m x 5m, it fills the lobby at their Tunbridge Wells offices.
