Tom Leamon

born in 1981

Tom Leamon ( b.1981) is a London based Painter. His work delves into that of the human psyche, with a fascination in the cycle of birth, life, growth and death. There are stories being told in all of Leamon’s creations, but he does not want you to simply read them, his work necessitates that you get inside them. Exploring symbolism in a number of mark making techniques, Leamon’s work challenges on both a sentimental and spiritual level. Leamon has a BA in Fine Art, Loughborough (2003) and received the Arts Bursary from Red Cow Studios (2005).
