Mark Lewis (Canadian, b. 1958) is an artist based in London, UK. Known for his investigation of the cinematic image and its representation of modernity, Lewis is interested in exploring how the pictorial tradition “can continue through film and if so, how that tradition itself has been transformed by film.” Lewis trained at Harrow College of Art and Polytechnic of Central London. He worked in Vancouver and Toronto before moving to the UK, where he is Professor of Fine Art at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts, London. He is co-founder and co-editor of Afterall – A Journal of Art, Context and Enquiry and editor of Afterall Books. His works have been exhibited extensively in North America and internationally in solo exhibitions such as at The Power Plant, Toronto and the Musée du Louvre, Paris. In 2007, Lewis received the Gershon Iskowitz Prize and the Brit Art Doc Foundation Award and in 2009, Lewis represented Canada at the Venice Biennale.
