Lewis Scott (UK, 1987) studied at Central St Martins in London and the University of Applied Arts in Vienna before beginning to work as a self employed artist and designer. He lives and works in Vienna, Austria. His work is heavily connected to the natural environment, weather and atmosphere as well as an abstract portrayal of light and colour. Many of his paintings are created outside.
The natural environment and how it can effect our emotions and creative process. The weather and way it changes our perception of ourselves as well as the outside world. Being in the wild and exposed to the elements.
Describe your creative process.
Much of my work is created outside in the nature and then brought into the studio to be stretched or worked over. My painting process itself can be quick and spontaneous with large periods of waiting and feeling inspiration before starting.
