Henry Lewis is a San Francisco-based painter/tattooer/graphic designer. In his studio is where Henry sits and paints and smokes cigarette after cigarette, ostensibly for hours and hours every single night, after he leaves Everlasting Tattoo.
Henry's been working almost exclusively in oils over the past year, and has become incredibly adept with the medium. Theres something about oil paint that you cant get with any other paint; it has to do with luminosity. The layers all build on each other and when handled with some skill, the canvas fairly glows. Its also a very subtle medium and difficult to master.
