Born in Porthmadog, North Wales, and based in Cardiff, Elfyn Lewis is a painter whose distinctive abstract paintings are held in a number of public and private collections.


In 2009 Elfyn was awarded the gold medal for fine art at the National Eisteddfod of Wales and later went on to be named Welsh artist of the year in 2010.


His love of place is a clear strand throughout his work which are, as he describes, ‘layered time after time until the upper layer explodes and transforms from its volcanic creation into a vivid landscape’
