Lives and works in London, UK.

About

Lewis Brander’s practice encompasses paintings, works on paper, photography and writing. Taken as a whole, his body of work demonstrates a sustained emphasis on the sentimental moment, often navigating seemingly disparate themes through the lens of a camera or the surface of a canvas - ranging from nature to urban decay, the mundane to the socio-political - into a body of work concerned with poetic discourse.

Lewis Brander is based in London. He graduated from the BA Fine Art course at Goldsmiths College in 2018 and was based exclusively in Athens from 2018-2020.
