Thomas Cameron

Thomas Cameron studied Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee, graduating in 2014.

His work explores the everyday scenes that often go unnoticed through their apparent familiarity

Thomas is particularly drawn to the urban landscape and the relationship between nature and the built environment. Film is a major influence in his work. He likens his paintings to still frames with the suggestion of a narrative, small parts of a bigger story.

Thomas staged his first solo exhibition at The Sutton Gallery, Edinburgh, in September 2015.

He currently lives and works in Glasgow.
