I first discovered Lewis on Instagram when I became interested in Abstract faces. His art was so distinct and unlike anything I had seen before. He created portraits that were the complete opposite of high realism. His drawings were grungy, predominantly black and white and very cool. And his work was part of my inspiration to find my drawing style. Sandra is also a big fan of his work so we were thrilled when he agreed to come on the show.
