Reynold Thomas

Artist member since 2021
Oakville, Ontario

Reynold Thomas is a Visual Artist whose work shows a perfect mix of exquisite beauty and raw strength. His art is marked by distinct colour selections and bridges abstract and figurative art to capture on canvas what transcends reality. Thomas uses the visual sensory experience of his work as a space to explore and deconstruct the female identity and body—spiritually and physically. His work is a recalling and remembrance of grace and culture coupled with an excavation of modernity through the symbol of beauty.
