We are excited to welcome back British artist Tom Bagshaw
for his second RUN. His first piece All These Devils paid homage to a saintly sinner of the adult world, but here in his latest Tom pays homage to one of his favorite painters of the art world. Read on below for more on Pandora
"It was created specifically for the Literal Eyes show at London Miles gallery, the show's theme was to pay homage to historical paintings that had been a personal inspiration. The only stipulation was that it should be a piece created before the WWII. I chose to do Dante Gabriel Rossetti's 'Pandora'. I saw the final painting first but it was one of his chalk drawings he produced that I really favoured. I saw this piece in an art history book when i was a child and really helped shape my love of figurative works and introduced me to the works of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood." - Tom Bagshaw
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Based in the Georgian city of Bath, England, Tom Bagshaw
works as a commercial illustrator under the moniker Mostlywanted and is represented by The Central Illustration Agency. His talents are sought after by clients in fashion, advertising, editorial and publishing, and include Saatchi & Saatchi, Sony, the BBC, The Daily Telegraph, Kraft, GQ, Future Publishing, Scholastic and Random House.
For his personal work he has developed a highly rendered digital painting style through which he explores portraiture and figurative themes of fantasy, beauty and mysticism. While his work deals with imaginative content, it also aims for a strong level of realism in its presentation. Feminine beauty and portraiture play a central role in his work, but the women he depicts are never frail damsels in distress. More often than not they are strong, intriguing characters, with an air of mystery to them.
