About Thomas Campbell:
Thomas Campbell is a self taught painter, sculpture, photographer and filmmaker. He splits his time between painting/sculpture/stuff making studio in Bonny Doon, California and traversing the globe making films. Campbell's artworks combine scribbles and scriptures, taking slogans and anecdotes from his unique vocabulary and juxtaposing them with a profound look at human nature. His movement -oriented paintings are as layered with meaning as they are with paint. The works, typically composed of several panels, are free-flowing with wide expressionist swipes of colour, bold graphics and intricate renderings of characters and text. Campbell has mounted solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, Tokyo, The Netherlands, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Morocco. In 1999, he completed his first feature length surfing film, The Seedling, and in 2004 released his second, Sprout and released his 3rd 'The Present' in early 2009.
