Dylan Lewis is a South African artist who has emerged as one of the foremost figures in contemporary sculpture. Lewis has focused chiefly on the cat as his subject and has created an unrivalled collection on this theme - ranking as one of the most important collections of animal sculpture to come out of Africa. He has extended his artistic talents to the human form, especially its relationship with nature, and has had equal success as with his animals.

His sculptures touch the element, the pristine and the world of legend and enchantment. Lewis´ empathy with nature and its living forms is evident in his ability to powerfully convey the essence of predators and prey, and the environment in which we all exist.
