London based artist Thomas D Wright, AKA Tommy Fiendish, has made his mark
in several creative fields as a musician, street artist, sign-writer, TV set designer,
and tattoo artist. Wright draws upon these diverse experiences in his current
practice as a freelance painter. Graduating with first degree honours from LCC,
University of the Arts London, 2018, he now works from his studio in Hackney, east London .
Wright’s core process lies with acrylics and spray paint and enamel on linen. His work is often
experimental, combining expressive marks and gestural abstract ideas with pockets of
graphic detail. His paintings reference vintage images and surreal metaphors to depict
contemporary situations, often with darkly humorous overtones. Working in series
allows him to explore ideas, themes and techniques, and expand his field of
allusions, capturing dystopian social commentary with a twist of macabre drollery.
Since exhibiting at The Other Art Fair, London 2019, Wright is now
represented by Eclectic Gallery, London, Dantzig Gallery, Oxfordshire, Clifton Fine Art, Bristol, Patrons of Art, London and Graduate Art, London.
