Biography


KYLE VINCENT THOMAS
 
Born in Newton, Massachusetts
BFA Painting
MFA Figurative Painting
 
Kyle Vincent Thomas is a contemporary realist who excels in painting still-lifes, landscapes, and the figure. His works hang in private collections across America and internationally in Ireland, Scotland, and France. Though he didn't start painting until his early 20's, Kyle has had a deep interest in art from an early age. As a young boy, he loved to draw. Through books and museum visits, he developed a great love for realist art, especially the works of Michelangelo and Rembrandt. However, serious study in art didn't start for him until 1997 when he enrolled at Laguna College of Art and Design. It was there that he trained to draw and paint in the classical tradition. While studying at LCAD, Kyle discovered and became greatly influenced by the 19th century artists John Singer Sargent and Joaquin Sorolla. He continues to look to their work for guidance and encouragement. Kyle graduated in 2000 with a BFA in Painting. He later went on to receive his MFA in Figurative Painting from the Academy of Art University in 2009.
 
Kyle currently lives in Chandler, Arizona with his wife and three children.
