London, One Man Show
In early September 2017 Tom had a One Man Show at a South London art gallery. “Joie de Vivre” explored positive, passion, life dreams and aspirations through a series of large uplifting playful abstract pieces of work, created with the same sense of freedom and love of life that the show's title suggests. Tom’s bold use of colour and texture in his works really make his work stand out in that they seem to possess 3D qualities via the generous use of paint and energetic effects that bring the works to life.
