‘Where does animalkind end and humankind begin? What of the wild and the primitive within? In exploring these tantalising enigmas, Lewis searches wilderness, myth and ancient belief systems for inspiration, meaning and answers.’
In spite of turbulent economic times, the Dylan Lewis: Shapeshifting auction on Tuesday, September 10th was a huge success.
The Christie’s London King Street sale room was packed with art collectors and buyers, with more joining from 7 different countries around the world via internet and telephone bidding. 100% of the lots offered were sold amidst fierce international bidding, and prices largely exceeded expectations with many sculptures selling above their high estimates.
This success would not have been possible without the dedication of the Christie’s sales team, the Dylan Lewis Studio team and the enthusiastic support of Dylan Lewis collectors around the world.

* Dylan was the keynote speaker at a ‘Christie’s Lates’ event, which took place the evening before the auction. With over 1000 guests in attendance, this event was one of their busiest so far in the series.
