The Work of Tom Thewes

The Northville Art House is proud to present its April exhibit, “Detritus,” an exciting solo artist show featuring the work of Detroit cultural icon and acknowledged airbrush master, Tom Thewes. Thewes’ compelling artwork has been described as masterful firestorms of line and color–still images that are anything but still.  Painted facets and planes, the visual impact of tectonic plates that shift and collide, capture pop cultural insights from the artist’s own underground experiences and brave influences. Be sure to check out this amazing exhibit which runs now through April 26th

Artist Tom Thewes could take his amazing talents anywhere in the world, but he chose to stay right here in Detroit where he currently lives and works. Thewes is not only known for being an air brush and spray paint master, he is also known for starting one of the first galleries in the country to show "Lowbrow" art. The gallery was none other than famous C-POP Gallery which was located in mid-town Detroit. Toms gallery brought famous artists to the city such as Shephard Fairey, Ron English, Bask, Yumiko Kawikawa, Mark Ryden and many more.
