Meet Tomas Rowell of Birmingham, UK.
Teaching art showed Tomas Rowell that it is not necessarily what the art looks like but how the work makes you feel.
Following in the footsteps of minimalist giants, Tomas investigates the physical qualities of art rather than its representational powers. Color, geometry, and balance are guiding forces. He’s witnessed the insightful influence that art of any kind can have on the mind and its ability to allow individuals to embrace themselves in creativity without any judgmental repercussions.
Trained at Leeds Arts University, it was actually upon leaving school that he realized he was painting for his own benefit.
Tomas has persistently experimented with painting; understanding its ability to confront the physical qualities of art over an external embodiment. Through his quest to add sustainability in his work and eradicate unnecessary elements, Tomas began a fascination with the color black.
It continues to be the most influential tone within his current works, offering instinctive depth and a subconscious captivation.
