Lester Korzilius


1958, American, naturalised British, lives and works in the UK.

Lester Korzilius is an artist and architect.  As a licensed architect in the US and UK he has practised in both countries on projects around the world and now runs his own arts and architecture practice in London and Chichester.  In the arts, Korzilius graduated with an MFA from the University of Sussex/West Dean in 2019, and is pursuing an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Arts. 

Korzilius is interested in the cross-over between architecture and art and has a particular interest in installations, land art, and site-specific works. His work involves the viewer, the artworks, and the environment.  Korzilius’ sculptural work has a tectonic quality that is rooted in his architectural practice.

Group shows have included the Amberley Museum Arts Trail; See, Artgame Gallery, Margate; Line and Form, West Dean College; and West Dean Open House.  Installations include Ascension at the Chichester Festival Theatre and subsequently at St Richards Hospital, Chichester.  Other selected works installed at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth; New Park Cinema, Chichester, Emsworth Yacht Harbour, West Sussex; St Richards Hospital, Chichester, and Maisemore Gardens Ltd, Hampshire.
