As a painter I am interested in making the work of the soul more visible and real, enriching our everyday lives. It is in these moments when our soul speaks to us in a quiet, perhaps even a silent voice - wielding great power and influence at both a conscious and unconscious level.
A primary role of my art is to provide clarity and insight into issues of soul as inherent elements of man's role in creation. As awareness and consciousness increases, so does the clarity with which we are able to perceive the exquisite beauty and wholeness of creation. Ultimately, art acts as both a mirror and a lens that gives presence and visibility to that which previously was unseen, unknown and not understood, often residing in the underground of the conscious.
Chicago artist Thomas Fedro creates abstract art with zing and boundless humor. His original innovations of creative and playful discovery incorporate a combination of cubist collage and whimsical pop art that have an addictive rhythm all their own. Large paintings, deep colors, big features and bold lines that seem to be electrically charged represent an exiting way of seeing and experiencing the modern world through his eyes. Tom lives and works in Wheeling, IL just outside of Chicago. He attended Valparaiso University and The Illinois Institute of Art. He owned a gallery for many years in Chicago. Currently, he is represented by galleries in the US and Europe and recent special projects include pieces commissioned for the Broadway show "Rent", the 40th anniversary of "The Second City", NBC Television, Toogood Wineries, Sweet Riot Candy Co., Amano Chocolates and Chicago's "Cow's on Parade". Corporate commissions include pieces for IBM, Hotel Allegro in Chicago, historic Navy Pier and Washburn Guitars. Thomas Fedro's original abstract art paintings, sculpture and cubist art works hang in over 3,000 private and corporate art collections in over 15 countries world-wide.
