This painting was then exhibited at the Palazzo di Strozzi in Florence, Italy alongside Picasso and Kandinsky amongst others.As part of the prize he presented a solo exhibition centred around Beer and Guns at the Mall Galleries. Most recently Lewis joined the committee of the Royal Society of British Artists as one of the youngest members to be awarded membership to date.

Painting Style

Hazelwood-Horner's work is concerned with the craft of the artist's practice. The paint is generously applied to the canvas but in using the primed surface as a pallet, little is left to waste. This results in thick textured paintings. He has approached the theme of London based crafts with bravura, showing key influences from 20th century painters like Sorolla and Zorn.
