George Thomas

"I enjoy painting realistically and surrealistically. My allegorical paintings are in the style of utopian surrealism.”

Born the same year as Disneyland (1955), George Thomas grew up in the heady era of early space travel, rocket-themed cars, Googie architecture and the Mid-Century marvels that defined a generation. George brings this fascination to his oil-on-canvas works, with amazing effect, iconic allegories, complex imagery and stunning detail; all with a comfortable nod to the fun camp of the age.

 A Southern California native, George graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design. He raised three children and spent twenty years as a missionary and teacher in remote cultures around the globe.

George currently resides and continues his art in Palm Springs, California.
