The Artist Says:

My interests in fine art and in architecture grew simultaneously throughout my life. Eventually, I have come to see that they are one and the same. But as much or more than any real world structure, the images of architecture - the stories it has to tell - are what truly fascinate me.

What buildings and the cityscapes of the world have to tell us about who we are as people; how we view our lives: past, present and future, our relationship to our natural environment and other creatures, as well as to our fellow humans, make endlessly compelling narratives. These are the stories I try to tell in my paintings.

Following a 20-year career in New York City as an architect and architectural artist, Tom Schaller is now based in Venice, California where he devotes himself full-time to artwork in the watercolor medium.

He has long been considered one of the foremost architectural artists in the world. In the field, he has won every major award for his artwork - including being a two-time recipient of the Hugh Ferriss Memorial Prize. He has authored two books ; the best-selling, and AIA award of merit winner, Architecture in Watercolor, and The Art of Architectural Drawing.
