Shevon Lewis

Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 85

Shevon Lewis is a Toronto based Sri Lankan-Canadian Artist. He is a Sessional Instructor at OCADu teaching Observational and Illustrative Painting.

Shevon uses traditional representational oil painting techniques to observe, hold space with, and transform lived and observed experiences. Through this he hopes to find the magic in complex experiences to connect emotion and gesture from self to others.

This body of work originates from the desire to capture the childhood memory of a monsoon, which expands into exploration of memory represented by the reflective surface. Placed into and on top of this memory space is a representation of the connection of the self and the unconscious. What emerges out of the reflective surface explores the relationship of conflict, support, migration, transformation and renewal experienced as a first generation immigrant.

For any inquires about my work I can be reached at email or via Instagram direct message. Visits to my Toronto west end studio to view the work in person can be arranged.
