Tom Cox - Artist Bio
Tom Cox (B.1990) is a Londoner, the son of an Irish father and an Italian mother. He studied a foundation diploma in Fine Art Painting at Camberwell, UAL, going on to complete his BA at Northampton University.
Predominantly working with Indian ink and oil paints, he has spent the last six years capturing scenes of architecture and life in London.
Tom’s paintings are expressive and colourful; from drinkers outside London's ubiquitous pubs, bustling crowds at glamorous events, protestors marching through the city centre, to simple scenes of people waiting for the bus or having a coffee.
His work is inspired by impressionism, cubism and surrealism and seeks to offer a reflection of our culture and our history. From the mundane to the extraordinary, he aims to capture our time and for his paintings to pinpoint this moment in history.
In 2016 Tom founded Focus LDN, a pop-up gallery that exhibits his work and the work of both established and emerging artists. In 2018 he took Focus LDN to Sao Paulo, Brazil and forged connections with successful Brazilian artists, orchestrating its first international exhibition.
In 2019 corporate interest grew and he undertook a number of large scale commissions and simultaneously was taken on by the Select Gallery in Notting Hill.
Tom’s artwork has been featured in the Evening Standard, The Guardian, and Artists & Illustrators Magazine. Tom continues to paint and organise exhibitions from his London studio, growing his international audience and developing relationships with collectors, galleries and brands.
