Personal profile

Research and Innovation interests

Jack Lewdjaw (b.1990 Loughborough) is an artist and educator who lives and works in Birmingham. He is Co-Director of the gallery east bristol contemporary , leads EBC Schools (inc. Day School), and teaches at Birmingham School of Art (BCU). He was also a participant of Syllabus V: a peer-led alternative learning programme run in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre (Cambridge), Eastside Projects (Birmingham), Spike Island (Bristol), The Newbridge Project (Newcastle), Iniva (London), and S1 Artspace (Sheffield).

Jack's research interests primarily lie within alternative arts education and his own artistic practice.

His work is influenced by approaches developed whilst working as a graphic designer, which he adopts to inform design-led methodologies for working and approaches around colour palette, composition, and type. He frequently sets himself briefs when working, encouraging formal and spatial limitations to emerge.

Jack’s work embraces the themes of decay, ruination, and the architecture of public space (particularly the vernacular design of shop fronts), where there is a tension between thematics and materials used. His works have often been described as anachronistic, operating in an uneasy historical space of reference points and projected futures. Most recently, he has started exploring ideas around drawing in digital environments as well as working with images captured on his mobile phone.

Day School is a year-long programme, offering artists a shared studio space alongside monthly education days with guest artists, support and advice for work and careers, and other professional development opportunities, community projects and social occasions.

Day School is committed to the idea of alternative education as a meaningful response to the current climate of UK arts education provision, and the opportunity to contribute to maintaining a thriving artistic community in Bristol. 

Invited guest artists/professionals reflect the many different artistic practices represented in the UK. Day School is an inclusive and welcoming environment, and the artists we work with are selected with these values in mind.
