Posted by admin on February 18, 2014  /   no comment

George H. Lewis is an English artist who has travelled across the globe, including long stays in Italy and the Middle East. With his distinctive urge to unveil natural beauty, tackle gender equality issues, and expose all marginalised matters that penetrate society’s meat and flesh, his works impress the viewer. With his photographs and mixed-media paintings, Lewis tries to challenge the system in an effort to capture the truth that lies within each individual. To Lewis, all men are created equal, for the sun, the moon, and the entire universe is equally given as a gift to us all.
