Tommy Fiendish is a fulltime artist living in London. Graduating with a first-class degree from LCC, University of the Arts London in 2018, he explored many creative paths including TV set design, tattoo artist as well as a musician. Tommy has exhibited at Saatchi Gallery, The London Art Fair as well as many other fairs and galleries across the UK.
Color plays an important role in Tommy’s work. His lavish use of bright bold colors, contrast and confident brush strokes, set against
scenes of dilapidated buildings consistently strike an anomalous scene. The artist guides us through his magical imagination across a sea of color, deserted buildings, and majestic animals, often with darkly humorous overtones.
Images in Frames particularly love Tommy’s staircase series. He is brilliant at painting surreal metaphors rather than literal interpretation to communicate his ideas. The graffiti in the background often referring to a sense of life; someone was once in this abandoned building. The windows in several of his Staircase series remind us of Rene Magritte’s artwork. After consideration, we wonder what is real and what is based on a false premise. Why are these majestic animals in such an odd setting? Do they exist in a dystopian society? His work is brilliant and striking, often leaving us wanting to know more.
