London based artist Thomas D Wright; aka Tommy Fiendish draws from a background in street art, tattooing and typography which are evident amongst the layers within his modern baroque paintings. Self-taught and using experimental techniques, Wright frequently references vintage imagery, placing them in contemporary paradoxical situations to communicate a passion and truth through image, it’s work that you feel as well as view.
His thought provoking and evocative images are a dystopian social commentary, often with a twist of macabre drollery.
'My paintings are a collection of forms put in place to communicate a sensation based around a subject. I see them as musical scores, the instruments of the orchestra are played in such a way as to stir emotions at the will of the composer’.
