"This piece is based off an acrylic painting that was selected to be in a show a year ago at Shepard Fairey’s gallery, Subliminal Projects. The gallery showcased some of the late photographer Jim Marshall’s unseen work that documented “the progression of the use of the peace symbol in America between 1961-1969” and submissions needed to be inspired by the peace symbol in order to be considered.
After getting the chance to go to LA for the first time because of the show, I came back incredibly inspired. This inspiration helped to forge the initial idea for my solo show, “Don’t Believe the Hype” which takes place early next month, of which these pieces fit in very appropriately." - Thomas Wimberly
Thomas Wimberly is an artist and designer based out Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Growing up in the deep south, his interests often veered from the typical sportsman way of life in favor of one pursuing the arts.
Growing up in a fairly traditional home, his discovery of punk rock and the mindset behind it in early college introduced him to a world he’d never known before. Show flyers, DIY venues, and the mindset of shaking things up instead of just coasting through life stuck with him and began to shape his work.
After some time exploring different inspiring artists and their styles, he’s begun trying to make work to speak for himself. With stark value grouping, limited colors, and for the most part topical subject matter, he hopes to further drive the ideas that fuel him, all while addressing the issues of this world.
Thomas earned his B.A in Graphic Design from Louisiana State University and lives with his wife, Brooke, and their bulldog, Macintosh.
