Karen Thomas (b.1963/UK) is acclaimed for her pop-culture figures and loosely dynamic painting style. While her infamous superhero collections reconstruct well-known characters’ identities with wild expressionism, her postcard collectibles transpose celebrities into small, but utterly enigmatic portraits. In doing so, Karen Thomas has created a distinguished style, recognisable for its thick and vivacious brushstrokes.
She has shown both individually and in group exhibitions at The Other Art Fair (London, Bristol, Brooklyn, Los Angeles) and Art Below ( London New Orleans, Los Angeles), SELECT Art Fair, New York, Affordable Art Fair, Hamburg and the Berliner and Kölneer Liste. Her work has also been included in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, featured on the culture show and identified by Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator at Saatchi Art as a ‘must see’ artist
