"It's always sunny on the walk. At least for him," jokes Keith Thomson. Man walking his dog on a rainy afternoon in Manhattan. Graphic painting style abstracting the surrounding landscape and emphasizing the reflectiveness of the wet surfaces. Nice contrast provided by the yellow-orange lights dotted around the composition. Angled picture plane creates depth and draws the eye back to the cars and buildings in the far distance.
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.
