A contemporary impressionist street scene of a rainy night in New York. The bright light of the neon sign reflects off of the many wet surfaces, warming the cool atmosphere. "'Red Sign' is an attempt to answer the question: Why is red neon especially appealing on rainy nights?" explains artist Keith Thomson. "Perhaps it is that the rain and gloom serves to emphasize the red. And, as Bill Blass said, 'Red is the ultimate cure for sadness.'"

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.
