Artwork

A man sits in his living room with a huge smile on his face, happily accompanied by an Easter Island statue seated across him. "Some paintings have an underlying message, theme, or meaning," says artist Keith Thompson. "For example, the personal relationship one can have with a work of art." He pauses and continues, "'Friend from Polynesia' is not one of those paintings," jokes Keith.

Keith Thomson

Birmingham, Alabama

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.

This piece reflected much of the past year, 2020, to me. In it I saw an individual stopping briefly to do what is needed to keep going through the darkness. Its simple and powerful in that regard, I suppose that's the power of art.
