Located between two worlds, one wild and one tamed, the Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden borders the manicured suburbs of Stellenbosch and a rugged mountain wilderness where leopard still roam.
Dylan Lewis was born in 1964 and raised in an artistic family in South Africa. His father was an accomplished sculptor, his mother and grandmother were painters, and his great-grandfathers an architect and cabinetmaker.
Lewis initially followed in the family tradition, beginning his career as a painter, but later turned to sculpture.
Widely recognised as one of the world’s foremost sculptors of the animal form, he initially focused on the big cats. In recent years, he has used the human figure to explore our relationship with our inner wilderness.
His international career spans two decades and includes exhibitions in Paris, Sydney, Toronto, Houston and San Francisco, as well as numerous one-man exhibitions in London. He is among the few living artists to have held solo auctions at Christie’s London.
