Artist Tom Bushnell, Experimenting with Color and Texture
by Jarone Ashkenazi, 2018
Tom Bushnell’s love of the power of
color in painting began at an early age. Inspired by Impressionism,
Bushnell quickly realized how color can be evocative and an
important part of the human experience.
Following his studies at The Central & Ravensbourne Colleges of Art and Design, he received commissions to paint the portraits of the rich and famous – as well as copies of the Old Masters, animal portraits and sporting pieces, still life compositions and landscape scenes. He has exhibited with leading artists including Sir Peter Blake and John Hoyland. Some slides of his work are stored in The National Portrait Gallery archives. Some of his Abstract paintings have been accepted at the famous Royal Academy Summer Show. His paintings are included in collections in the UK and across the globe.
Bushnell believes art has the “the ability to uplift and inspire the human soul and overcome much of the negative aspects of life” and by experimenting with color and texture to create new compositions he can create the “wow factor which resonates with the viewer.”
Tom is available for Abstract and Representational painting commissions.
