About the artwork
Lewis Buttery was making all his work by drawing with ink and by painting with acrylic. He wanted to experiment with some other media. Lewis decided that he would give oil pastels a go, even though he remembered hating using them when he was younger. He drew a figure wearing robes, but he tried applying it in different thicknesses to experiment with texture. Lewis had started on the path of opening up to using different media and he confirmed that he still didn’t like using oil pastels.

Lewis Buttery is a nationally exhibited artist from Leicester, UK. He was born in 1995 and comes from a working class background. Lewis was struggling with his mental health, had dropped out of college and had no job prospects. He learned in counselling that challenging fear helps against anxiety and decided to apply that to his career direction.

Lewis wants to get to the point where he's doing shows and artist residencies around the world.
"Fantastic!!!!! Some real Buttery artwork!!!! It's very personal but professionally done. It's in the hallway facing you when you open the door. I think visitors will then get a feel for my home."
