ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Thom Wright has combined his passions for art, music and engineering, and all of his practices have benefited each other.In 1986, he had an epiphany, one of those moments when he realized that he had to be a better artist.His subject matter moved toward contemporary issues, including geopolitics, global environment, technology, cultural and natural processes of change, and jazz. His abstracts also migrated towards mixed media and printmaking.These interests and processes continue in his art work, with his current focus in eco-art.
Desiring to improve his skills, theory and knowledge in art, he took early retirement from the Boeing Corp. in 1999 and entered art school full time.In May, 2006, he completed the MFA program in Drawing and Painting at California State University, Long Beach.
