  • illyana

    these are utterly bad ass!

  • This has to be my favorite post so far.

  • this is fucking awsome

    greetings from argentinaaa

  • panda

  • Serenade of love

  • Kim

    I love all the detail in the clothing! Most of them are so well done I nearly thought they were photographs.

  • Jennifer


  • alaskaaaa

    Wow. I love the first one.

  • this could be called “Portraits of Ex-Girlfriends”

  • And the fifth one tooooo,

  • madeline

    i love the fifth one

  • The first painting from Kris Lewis is absolutely stunning.

    The petals of roses flying are so soft, yet the girl is a strong character.

    As I look at all these paintings from Kris Lewis I find that she uses backgrounds and clothing that comes from a past era, but she uses faces/features/makeup that is quite current and the juxtaposition of the two is simply brilliant.

    I didn’t know about her at all, but I’ve bookmarked this page and will try to find out where you can buy her art.

    Jeff – is she a Canadian artist?

    Wow – thanks for exposing me to such beauty on a Sunday morning!


  • I wish that I had the brain to hand dexterity Kris has! Just found your site today. Very cool. Keep it up!

  • Rolf

    This is really great, I get the feeling like this is a modern take on Mannerism (esp. the last one) and Renaissance.
    Great work (Y)

  • These are incredible. I love these colors and mystical atmosphere of these paintings.

  • Love the modern take on the portrait. Great style.

  • anne

  • Ganissa

    These are amazing! I would love for him to do one of me!

  • Andrew

    Saw Kris Lewis earlier this month at Art Basel in Miami. His stuff is even more amazing in front of you.

  • Brittany


    I absolutely love the artwork, it’s exquisite!
    My parents are art collectors, and I’d like to get a price list please.


  • Richard Chalmers

    Gorgeous work. Beautiful, evocative, haunting, and sexual. Beautifully rendered but they go so far beyond the beautiful craftsmanship. Who are the women? How did they get where they are? Who is the painter? What is the story?

  • so awesome… i’m a huge fan.

  • Jesse

    this is glorious

  • Artworks are great. These are wonderful! I’m in love these.

  • Sooo beatiful portraits!

    Such a fresh work

  • The light is so MARVELLOUS!

    Perfectly rendered

    Loved them!

  • Terrel

    these piecies are too gooooood! I want one! ugh

  • tessa

    absolutely breathtaking.

  • Hallidd
