A humorous work featuring three patrons perusing a gallery show. Two of the subjects are draped in shadows, allowing the art within the art to take center stage. "True story from when I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising in New York," says artist Keith Thomson. "One of Charles Saatchi's paintings arrived from London and was installed in our lobby: a plus-sign - or a cross maybe - rendered in masking tape on a giant sheet of plywood with an elaborate marble frame that included a pair of tombstones. Some people loved it, some didn't get it. A year later, someone figured out that the plywood was just protective material for the painting underneath."

Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.
