About Tom Boatright
Tom was compelled to paint in 2008, having had a visionary and transformative experience. He emerged from that incident able to feel the emotion and energy of the world. His paintings convey that energy. The canvas is a platform for the energy to surface.
Tom creates artisan paints from raw oils, resins, pigments, and powders. The viscosity of the paint affects the tools Tom uses. The paint is scraped, rolled, sprayed, pulled, and dropped on the canvas. Tom’s technique is very experimental and fluid. His paintings are intended to be experiential. They are an invitation to the imagination – to go beneath the surface.
Tom's innovative method and diverse technique have received international recognition. His paintings are sought after by private collectors around the world and grace hundreds of homes and commercial spaces.
