Jack Lewdjaw (b.1990 Loughborough) is an artist and educator who lives and works in Bristol. He is Co-Director of the gallery east bristol contemporary , leads EBC Schools (Day & Night School), and teaches at Bristol School of Art. He was also a participant of Syllabus V: a peer-led alternative learning programme run in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre (Cambridge); Eastside Projects (Birmingham); Spike Island (Bristol); The Newbridge Project (Newcastle); Iniva (London); and S1 Artspace (Sheffield).

His work is influenced by approaches developed whilst working as a freelance graphic designer, which he adopts to inform design-led methodologies for working and approaches around colour palette, composition, signage and text found in public environments. He frequently sets himself briefs when working, encouraging formal and spatial limitations to emerge.

Jack’s work embraces the themes of architectural and technological decay, ruination, and the architecture of public and domestic space (particularly the vernacular design of shop fronts). Most recently, he has started exploring ideas around drawing in digital environments as well as working with images captured on his mobile phone.
