For those not familiar with Bertram’s oil paintings, he describes them ” as figures created  by combining bold colors with abstract shapes and a push/pull technique that creates volume and depth without using traditional perspective.   Typically, traditional perspective is replaced by flat shapes; depth is achieved by using a push/pull technique and by arranging colors so that some will advance and others recede.”

 

 

 He received his training primarily at the Art Students League in New York where he studied with such renowned contemporary artists as Burton Silverman, David Lefell, Greg Kreutz, and Costa Vavagiakis, among others.  He also studied with the well-known landscape painter David Dunlop at the Silvermine Artists Guild.

Working primarily in oil, Bertram has created portraits, figures, landscapes and still life. But, largely under the influence of abstract painter Frank O’Cain, he has moved towards more abstract work.   Today, his work involves impressionism and abstraction.  Bertram Lewis is known for his colorful abstract figure paintings.
