Nathaniel Lewis

Nathaniel Lewis is a Washington DC based artist whose work focuses on portraiture and figurative work through the creation of sculpted, paper photo works that combine elements of drawing, sculpture, etching, embroidery, and fabric. In these works, Lewis sculpts-out unseen tensions on bodies, representing them with an array of textures and patterns to reveal hidden layers of empathy within the viewer. Lewis received a BSN from Virginia Commonwealth University and has a background in critical care nursing. Lewis is the recipient of a 2014 DC Commission of the Arts & Humanities Visual Artist Fellowship Grant, and was a 2014 Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Regional Winner, Washington, DC.
