Yn wreiddiol o Dregaron, astudiodd Eurfryn yng Ngholeg Celf Caerfyrddin, ac yna cwblhaodd radd Celfyddyd Gain yn Athrofa Gelf Prifysgol Caerdydd, gan arbenigo mewn argraffu. Mae Eurfryn yn athro Celf a Dylunio, ac yn bennaeth adran yn Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw, Pontypwl ers 2002. Mae Eurfryn yn defnyddio technegau argraffu amrywiol er mwyn cynhyrchu ei waith, yn ogystal â gweithio gydag olew, golosg ac aml-gyfrwng. Daw ei ddylanwad yn bennaf o’i dreftadaeth Gymreig gref. Mae ei waith yn cynnwys cymeriadau cefn gwlad Cymru, corau - mae’n canu mewn côr ei hun, a’i frwdfrydedd mawr – rygbi. I gyd-fynd â Chwpan Rygbi’r Byd, mae’r arddangosfa hon yn cynnwys cyfres o ysgythriadau ar thema Rygbi. Mae’r gwaith yn cadarnhau Eurfryn fel un o wneuthurwyr printiau mwyaf talentog Cymru. “Celf a Rygbi oedd fy mhrif ddiddordebau mewn bywyd, ond gwyddwn bob amser mai Celf oedd yn dod gyntaf, ac rwy’n ffodus iawn o gael y cyfle hwn i, yn greadigol o leiaf, ddangos pa mor angerddol wyf wastad wedi bod am y gêm” Mae’r gwaith ymchwil ar gyfer yr arddangosfa hon yn dod o wylio ei neiaint ifanc yn chwarae rygbi, yn ogystal â mynychu sesiynau hyfforddi rygbi rhanbarthol a rhyngwladol. Mae 20 o ysgythriadau yn yr arddangosfa, ac maent yn amrywio o ddelweddau rygbi ieuenctid hyd at lefel ryngwladol - gan adlewyrchu ein perthynas fel Cenedl gyda’r gêm.


Eurfryn Lewis hails from Tregaron and studied at Carmarthen School of Art. He completed a Fine Art degree at University of Wales Institute Cardiff, specialising in Printmaking. Eurfryn is a teacher of Art and Design in Pontypool, where he has been head of the Art department since 2002. Eurfryn is primarily a printmaker but he also works in charcoal, oils and mixed media. The influence of his strong Welsh heritage is paramount and his subject matter is the Welsh people of rural Ceredigion, choirs – he sings in a choir himself, and his great passion – rugby. This exhibition consists of a new series of Rugby-themed etchings to coincide with the Rugby World Cup. The work confirms Eurfryn as one of Wales’ most talented printmakers. “Art and Rugby were my two main passions in life, but I always knew that Art preceded anything else, and I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity to, creatively at least, show how passionate I have always been about the game” His research for the work in this exhibition came from watching his young nephews train at grassroots level, up to attending regional and international rugby training sessions and games. There are 20 etchings in the exhibition ranging from images of youth rugby right up to international level – reflecting the diverse scope of our Nations’ relationship with the game.
