Lucille Lewin was born in South Africa in 1948 but the political and social upheaval of apartheid brought her to London. Before pursuing a career in fine art, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2017, she had an influential career in fashion as Founder and Creative Director of Whistles and Creative Director of Liberty. A residency in Dehua, China inspired her sculptures for the exhibition Blanc de Chine: A Continuous Conversation at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2019. She is currently preparing a new series including wall and floor installations in her London studio.
Lewin has shown at the V&A (2019), Christies (2017), Connolly’s (2018-2021), Messums Wiltshire (2017) and Collect at the Saatchi Gallery (2018-2020). Her work is held in public and private collections internationally, including the prestigious Doddington Hall collection.
