Keith Thomson
Birmingham, Alabama
Artist Keith Thomson creates multimedia art with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90's, an influence that manifested in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. "In 2016, when my kids retired from baseball, leaving me out of work as a little league coach, I suddenly had some free time, which led me to start painting," shares Keith. His portfolio consists of social realism commentaries and presents scenarios with a surreal and sometimes ironic twist. He begins his work as digital sketches using animation software, then transfers them onto a surface before painting. When working, he is accompanied by a box of oil paint, brushes, an easel, and Trouser—his faithful golden retriever and wire hair terrier mix. Apart from painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.

Artist Statement

Some of my work explores the changes to Norman Rockwell's America since Rockwell's day.

Otherwise, the work's objective is to provide escapism and, absent that, an improvement over a blank wall.
