London-based painter Lewis Hazelwood-Horner’s work is concerned with the craft of the artist’s practice. The paint is generously applied to the canvas but in using the primed surface as a pallet, little is left to waste. This results into thick textured paintings. He has approached the theme of London based crafts with bravura, showing key influences from 20th century painters like Sorolla and Zorn.

He was honoured to be awarded the prestigious Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2016 and the Visitors Choice Award with the painting Salt in Tea. This painting was then exhibited at the Palazzo di Strozzi in Florence, Italy alongside Picasso and Kandinsky amongst others.

As part of the prize he presented a solo exhibition centered around Beer and Guns at the Mall Galleries.

Most recently Lewis has become a member of the Royal Society of British Artists.
