Born in New York, Tom Wilson attended the Art Institute of Boston and lived in Northern California before returning in 2001. Wilson is an artist whose latest work mixes organic and electronic abstractions with surreal realism and collage elements. The mechanics of sound and amplification are a recurring theme and speakers--painted and real--abound. Past work has shown an interest in strange still life arrangements and graffiti style compositions with ambiguous letter forms and unreadable words. Wilson has exhibited at a variety of locations, from The Shore Institute to the Brooklyn bars Stain, Artland and South 4th. His work has appeared in Green Day's music video "Warning" and the film "Sausalito" starring Maggie Cheung.
