Paul Lewis Transformed Not Only His Life But Also Esquimalt Lagoon

Hi everyone,

I hope you all are staying safe in your homes. In India (where I live) things are going out of control. I am dealing with the situation like everyone else and the best thing one can do right now is not over think things. After all, what can not be changed must be endured and it should be endured calmly.

Coming back to the post, Let's wrap up the week with these sculptures by Paul Lewis. There is a very interesting story behind how Paul Lewis turned into an artist, you can read more here. When Paul was in jail his grandmother would send him pictures of owls from magazines. He would draw them and later got inspired by driftwood sculptures by Alex Witcombe. When he got released he started to collect drift wood as he could see shapes in twisted driftwood and turn them into sculptures.

Paul is from Victoria, BC who specializes in sculptures. He makes amazing sculptures on Beach Ent at Esquimalt Lagoon using driftwood. The sculptures have transformed the beach into an art gallery that has been visited by thousands of people who came to admire and take picture his work. You can follow his facebook page for new work.
