Kate Lewis

American, b. 1988

Kate Lewis is a Chicago-based artist whose freehand drawings fuse art and architecture to chronicle life experiences. With meticulous attention to detail, Lewis captures the intricacies of everyday edifices to memorialize the architectural elements of quotidien life and embolden viewers to discover new ways to engage with their surroundings. The purposeful selection of structures underlines the belief that walls silently absorb the stories lived within them; that much like us, they become a product of their environment. Lewis has drawn globally with pieces originating in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Mexico, France, Spain, Costa Rica, Brazil, Kenya, Tanzania, and Thailand.
