Bertram Lewis is known for his colorful abstract figure paintings.
He received his training primarily at the Art Students League in New York where he studied with such renowned contemporary artists as Burton Silverman, David Lefell, Greg Kreutz, and Costa Vavagiakis, among others. He also studied with the well-known landscape painter David Dunlop at the Silvermine Artists Guild.
Working primarily in oil, he has done portraits, figures, landscapes and still life.
Today, his work involves impressionism and abstraction. In his “Fractured Figures” series, traditional perspective is replaced with flat shapes, which are integrated through overlapping and interpenetration; depth is achieved by using a push/pull technique and by arranging colors so that some will advance and others recede.
His paintings have been sold and displayed at the Art Students League, the Belsky Museum (Closter, NJ), Shelly’s Restaurant (57 th St in NYC), the Mamaroneck Town Center and at several “Art Palm Beach” exhibitions starting in 2013. In addition, it has earned awards and appeared in various juried exhibitions, including those held at the Mamaroneck Artists Guild in Larchmont, NY, the Chapman Gallery at Iona College in New Rochelle, NY, the Easton Art Guild, Easton CT, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists in Ridgefield, CT, the Putnam Arts Council in Brewster, NY and the Ridgewood Art Institute, Ridgewood, NJ .
His work can be seen at the Sandra Neustadter Gallery in Delray Beach, FL. and at Arthur T. Kalaher Fine Art in Southampton, NY. He can be reached on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin, as well as by email.
