Guy Thomas

Guy Thomas (1957) is a self-taught painter from south Bretagne (France), but now based in Paris.
Drawing the male figure and doing full body portrait –capturing the essence of a particular moment– has been at the center of Thomas’ life and feelings. When he was young, he was attracted to the strange strength emanating from the old masters portraits. The intimacy of these tender moments expressed frankly and without guise was extremely powerful. This simple essence of life is what drove him to portraiture.
Later he found himself drawing rounded anatomy, sexy and charming figures. Sensuality is very essential to his work; since his teenage years, Thomas never stopped drawing what he loves most: big, strong, full bodies, hairy with rough or smiling bearded faces.
