Isaac Lewis was born in Havana, Cuba, and is now mostly based in Canada. The artist’s paintings range from expansive, relatively pared-down landscapes to vibrant urban scenes with multiple figures.

It’s clear even from a quick glance at Isaac’s portfolio that the artist has a great appreciation for jazz music. Like fellow artist Melvin Clark, Isaac  frequently takes jazz musicians as his subjects. The artist’s Jazzscape series takes not only the musicians themselves as its subject, but takes on the architectural spaces and places frequented by musicians and fans. Isaac’s take on the subject matter appears to culminate in a massive, mural-sized painting packed with details and figures.

Elsewhere in the artist’s portfolio, such as in Vancouver Through Cuban Windows, Isaac showcases his skill with blending colours and producing smooth gradients to capture beautiful sunsets and dramatic skies.
