For his latest project he is painting a large dramatic mural of a lifeboat on the side of the Ship Inn pub, at the corner of Middlegate and Northgate.
Lewis, 28, is also using it as an opportunity to help people to donate to the RNLI.
The Durham-based artist said: “I'm a great supporter of the RNLI so I thought a mural showing the Hartlepool lifeboat heading out to sea on a stormy day would be an eye-catching piece of work and I have also decided to add a QR code to the mural so anyone can donate to the RNLI this way.
"Also while I was working on other murals I got to know the people who live here and know the RNLI is really close to everyone’s heart and they do so much to fundraise.
"I’ve been to the lifeboat station and met the volunteers.
“They are all just local people who are really dedicated to helping out and I just wanted to do something that pays tribute to them.”
Lewis got to work about two weeks ago on the mural which is well underway.
He hopes to have it finished in around another week’s time.
The Ship landlord, Alan Hay, said: "I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished result.
"I'm sure it will be an impressive work of art."
Lewis said it has already gained a lot of attention from passers by.
"It’s at a really busy intersection,” he said. “People will stop their cars and have a look.
“It has been a really good response so far.”
For future projects he hopes to work with youth and community centres to help brighten up other areas of the town with public works of art.
Lewis has started an online fundraising page where people can donate to the RNLI at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/theshipinnrnli.
