"On the Way to the Met is impressionist both in style and concept," explains Keith Thomson with a smile. "The style component is self-evident - and pragmatic when rendering speed-of-light New Yorkers. As for the concept, there was indeed a guy wearing a Medieval Times shirt. The painting recasts him as an escapee from the Metropolitan Museum."

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.
