Tom Krol / Tom Król

November 16, 2015

Tom Król is a young German contemporary artist who explores symbols, shapes and details that might otherwise go unnoticed. His inspiration comes out of a mundane observation - he often finds a kind of beauty in daily life´s impressions. His paintings and drawings instill the ordinary aspects of our lives, they examine perceptions of our surroundings and the activities driven by commercial values.
