May: Chris Lewis-Smith

My paintings are made from seeing the world around me, filtering what I have seen and putting my imagination to work. I then suggest lines and shapes with ink as freely and loosely as I can. When the ink has dried I start to lay down some colours. I make my colours bold, not necessarily realistic. I like strong colour. I like to exaggerate. I mostly use gouache which is an opaque watercolour.

Being part of the collective of artists that make up the Norwich Art Shop is an opportunity that I don’t take for granted. It is an ideal space to showcase my work. Visit for a browse and to see some local affordable art.
