FEATURE FRIDAY - Thomas Ehretsmann

Here at Richard Solomon Artists Representative LLC, there's only one thing we love more than art and that is the artists who create it. One of the most amazing things about being an artist, in my opinion, is the ability to create a universal language to appeal to the masses. Art is a sensory experience; it allows you to think and feel. 

So today we'd like to take a moment to admire one of the greats we have on our team - Thomas Ehretsmann

Thomas Ehretsmann was born in 1974 and grew up in Thann France. He completed his studies at The School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg in 1998 and started his career as a comic book artist. In 2009, he studied with the great Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum. 
He has since went on to lead a successful career in illustration for almost two decades. Thomas' work has been featured in many notable magazines and publishings such as The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Elle Magazine, and many European books and journals. His most prestigious award to date came in March 2011 when he won a gold medal at the Society of Illustrators for "Muder Inc."

Thomas' style has been rightfully compared to that of Edward Hopper and is best known for his Neo-Noir acrylic paintings, depicting "how today's world would look like in the roaring 20's. " - Curator Inspired

Recently, one of Thomas Ehretsmann's paintings has been selected for the prestigious BP Portrait Award 2016 exhibition, which will be held at the National Portrait Gallery in London from June 23rd to September 4, 2016.  (See Below)
