About the Artist

 

Artist, Tom duBois, began taking his first art commissions in 1975, airbrushing murals on vans and motorcycles. He later attended the American Academy of Art in Chicago, an acclaimed commercial art school, founded in 1923.

After graduating, Tom began working as an illustrator in a large art production house in downtown Chicago. Eventually, his talent led him to freelancing and drawing storyboards for the largest agencies in Chicago’s then-booming advertising business.

At the start of the 90s, Tom was asked to create a line of prints of 5 of Disney’s classic films. The popularity of this Disney series opened the door to a group of collectors in the Limited Edition print industry. A dozen paintings later, Tom became well-known for selling out several series of large editions of images with Biblical themes.

 

Tom’s interest and pursuit of various art techniques is a mark of his resilience, and as technology moved to the forefront of society, Tom began combining his drawing and painting skills with the limitless possibilities availed through technology.

As Tom progressed personally, he matured towards a more heightened spirituality. He began to develop a unique and stylized look that resonated with his developing creative process and sanctified spiritual imaginings. Tom began to use the medium of art to tap into the dimensions beyond.

Michelangelo’s genius, his range of spiritual interest and artistic scope, as well as his ability to surpass the third dimension and bring the visions he received from beyond~ back and into his works here, marked Michelangelo’s place in history. Tom is similarly gifted.

Tom lives and works in Chicago, Illinois with his beloved dog, Javier.
