George lewis: I didn’t become an artist, I reincarnated as one
Artist and photographer George Lewis has spent time in the far-flung corners of the globe delving into the depths of human spirituality, painting and photographing his experiences – along with portraits of a number of high-profile individuals – along the way. Currently living in New York, the Londoner shares his beliefs, his experiences, and what he misses about living in the capital
What encouraged you to make the move from London to New York?
Although I’m a Londoner at heart, I’ve lived in many different places around the world at one time or another. I like to think of myself as a global citizen. My wife is American, and although we were happy living in London, I suggested that we go to live in her home state for a while, to be closer to her family. She couldn’t believe I’d want to do that; she thought I would want to stay connected to Europe – not necessarily London, but more the ‘old world’.
Do you miss London?
I love London, and I come back often. It will always be home for me. I grew up in Fulham, and before I moved here I lived in Kensington, not far from Notting Hill. What’s lovely is that when I go back, I now have friends all over the city.
