b. 1981 lives and works in LA, CA
Thomas Isaac was born in Flagstaff, AZ in 1981. He was raised on the Navajo Nation amongst the beautiful, painted deserts of Northern Arizona, where some of the last, wild things are. His art is to say the very least, colorful. The gesture displayed Bruce-Lee-style splashes across his chosen mediums, from video to the jagged edges of painting. Themes run through the long, visual song. Violence, memory, history, the future and the human awakening are some of the archetypes found underneath the artist's work.
