David Lewis has been working in the pigment processes for over 50 years and is considered by his peers to be a master of the bromoil and transfer processes. Early in his career David became very close friends with 6 great masters of the bromoil and transfer processes. They passed onto him the classical techniques that they had acquired from the pioneers of this rare art form. They also had many personal techniques that they had developed over the years which has proved invaluable to his own personal growth. Represented by the Joan Ferneyhough and the Washington Street Gallery, his images have also been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout North America, Europe, Cuba and Asia. In 2001 he published “The Passion Pit”, a tribute to the drive-in movie theatre and this coming October 2007 Cornell University Press is publishing his latest book with author Steven High, “Corporate Wasteland”. David manufactures a complete line of bromoil materials including brushes, pigments, presses, chemistry and his new special non-supercoated chlorobromide paper which produces a coin-like gelatin relief for inking-up!
