Born in 1936, Peter Anselm Lewis is one of the senior-most, accomplished artists of our region and the former Chairman of Karnataka Lalit Kala Academy.
Since his childhood, he was surrounded by folk cultures of the coastal district such as Yakshagana; and sports like Kambala (buffalo race) and Kori Katta (cockfight) inspired the artist in him to express it through his paintings. His interest in drawing and painting drove him all the way from the coastal village of Thonse to Sir JJ School of Art, Mumbai, where he had the opportunity of being trained under pioneers such as Haldankar and Dhopeshwarkar.
Having completed his studies, he returned to his village and settled down to continue his artistic career. This led him to become part of the local community and inspire the young emerging artists. He was actively part of several art movements which has directly and indirectly helped to create an art awareness within these spaces.
He has held several exhibitions in India and abroad, among which Me and My Coast showcased paintings that portrayed the deep-rooted love and tribute to his birthplace. Peter Lewis currently resides and works in the town of Brahmavara in the Udupi district, where he has set up Chitralaya, an art gallery for his personal collection of artworks.
1996 Rorich Memorial Award, 1992 Rajyotsava Award, 1990 Lalit Kala Awards, 2000-2004 Chairman of the Karnataka Lalit kala Academy.
