London based artist Thomas D Wright, AKA Tommy Fiendish, has made his mark in several creative fields as a musician, street artist, sign-writer, TV set designer, and tattoo artist. Wright draws upon these diverse experiences in his current practice as a freelance painter. Graduating with first degree honours from LCC, University of the Arts London, 2018, he now works from his studio in Hackney, east London.
Wright’s core process lies with acrylics, spray paint and enamel on linen. His work is often
experimental, combining expressive marks and gestural abstract ideas with pockets of graphic detail. His modern baroque paintings reference vintage image and surreal metaphors to depict contemporary situations, often with darkly humorous overtones.
Working in series allows him to explore ideas, themes and techniques, and expand his field of allusions, capturing dystopian social commentary with a twist of macabre drollery.
