Tom Leamon

born in 1981

Tom Leamon (b.1981) is a London born painter. His creations are an experiment into release, expressions of freedom in an altogether constrained world. His work delves into that of the human psyche, with a fascination in the cycle of birth, life, growth and death. There are stories being told in each and every piece, hidden and fractured messages which implore you to fully immerse yourself. Exploring symbolism in a number of mark making techniques Tom’s works challenge on both a sentimental and spiritual level. Leamon has a BA in Fine Art, Loughborough (2003) and received the Arts Bursary from Red Cow Studios (2005).
