Lewis Heriz is a cross-disciplinary artist and filmmaker from Suffolk, UK.
He comes to his animation practice from a background first in music and theatre, then grassroots music promotion. From the latter grew a decade-or-so-long stint in graphic art and illustration, with a heavy weighting on record cover and poster design for labels such as Soundway, Sofrito, Strut, and Now-Again/Stones Throw, and artists such as the Sun Ra Arkestra. The ‘manufactured synaesthesia’ approach he applied to music visuals led him to see animation – with its fusion of sound and image through time – as a natural progression, and has spent the MA at the RCA investigating as expanded an approach to the form as possible under the restricted circumstances of lockdown.
