Sean Thomas was born in Pennsylvania and studied Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design and Delaware College of Art and Design.
His work is inspired by modern feats of engineering. ‘I look at architecture and the modern industrialized landscape with interest and wonder,’ he says. In his work, he aims to represent those objects as man-made “fingerprints” integrated into the natural environment. To evoke a sense of decay in his paintings, he uses all traditional materials: oil, watercolor, and pencil.
Upon completing his degree, Thomas was selected for the European Honors Program. He lived in Rome for nine months to study Italian language and artistic treasures first hand. His work is now regularly exhibited at the Copley Society of Art in Boston.
