Hello, I'm James Lewis, a multidisciplinary British artist.
Over seven years ago my handwriting was terrible, so I decided to improve it by taking up calligraphy as a hobby. The hobby quickly grew into a passion for letters and language and I began sharing my calligraphy practise on social media.
Four years later, combined with my degree in graphic design, I set out to pursue my practise full-time. I began my career as a digital logotype & lettering designer, but slowly transitioned from designer to artist by focusing on calligraphy and painting.
My passion for letters, social media understanding, and hand crafted approach, have formed the basis of my career. I now share my artistic process with a combined following of over 1.5 million on Instagram and TikTok, with videos that have been viewed hundreds of millions of times.
I've exhibited my art, and taught lettering workshops all around the world. And worked with some of the most well known brands on a range of creative projects, from video content creation, to live mural painting, & clothing customisation.
Despite all the practise though, my natural handwriting is still only semi-legible. So, if you'd like to get in touch, please contact me via email, and not a handwritten letter.
