"A forgettable stretch of Seventh Avenue at 3 a.m., an overcooked Big Mac, the taxi driver's rant about gas prices - for some reason, these things inspired a painting," says Keith Thomson. A taxi whizzes by a blurred New York landscape. Graphic painting style abstracting the surroundings and emphasizing the bright and reflective quality of the scene. Nice contrast provided by the orange car and yellow signage, and the grey and blue pavement and buildings. Angled composition creates movement and sweeps the eye across the picture.

Getting to Know Keith

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.
