Tom French (b.1982, UK)
The works of UK based artist Tom French are predominantly figurative. He carefully combines detailed photorealism with strong elements of abstraction and surrealism, focusing on the reflection of the conscious and subconscious mind. French’s work often treads the fine line between the beautiful and unsettling, combining technically tight, classical charcoal drawings with carefree, loose and ostensibly unfinished abstract forms. By fusing the technical with lively abstraction French brings life and movement to his compositions. His work seamlessly merges the use of academic tradition with contemporary urban realism.

I ACTUALLY HAVE the book on my desk and I’ve always wanted to see the flight of the gold dragon, so this is pretty sweet if you ask me. The illustrations in this book are incredible, and this brings back a lot of good memories xD
I also have this book at home, and UGH! These are faaaantastic~ I could stare at them all day long!
