Thomas Petty was born in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany in 1995.
His family quickly moved back to the states where he grew up in Texas. Where he spent most of his time outdoors connecting with nature and creating art. This passion for art has continued throughout his life,
continually creating through high school. In Fall 2018 Thomas
received a BFA in Communication Design from Texas State University. Choosing his love of art, he decided not to pursue a design career.
After graduating Thomas had the chance to work for Gil Bruvel,
producing art and learning as much as possible in relation to being
an artist. Thomas has had many other great learning opportunities
that have fueled his pursuit of art. Including producing monumental
bronze sculpture at a foundry in Grapevine, and his current work in
art restoration. Near where he lives in the Dallas Fort-worth metroplex.
His own artwork revolves around the framework of nature, built of
many shapes and patterns. These repetitive forms can be found from
micro to macro scale allowing for endless connections seen and unseen. Together ultimately making up our reality and setting the stage of our
human experience. Thomas seeks to show these connections
to his viewers. To find the related elements that exist all around us.
Thomas looks at science and nature for inspiration. He heavily references sacred geometry for its significance in organic forms and ancient history.
