A man calmly rows across the East River in New York. The city on the horizon is depicted in a dreamy blur. "This painting illustrates the dream of anyone who has commuted to New York during the summer and has spent significant time in Penn Station and/or on the downtown 1 train," says 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.
