Lewis Heriz is a cross-disciplinary artist based in London, UK.
He is currently undertaking an MA in Animation at the Royal College of Art, focusing on analogue processes, optical sound, subjective consciousness and performance.
His graphic work – produced up until his transition to animation – is known for its warm and organic character, with hand-drawn typography and a bold aesthetic rooted in his family’s screenprinting heritage.
The majority of Heriz’s work over the past decade has been with independent record labels, creating graphics as a means of aiding the distribution of musical forms otherwise previously under-represented in Europe and North America. His work with Soundway Records and Sofrito Records has been primarily a mix of introductory packages and current productions; aiming to contextualise the musical movements that provide an insight into cultural scenes, and offering subjective snapshots of our perpetually fluid populations in time and place. And putting on loads of parties.
