Thomas Vincent John Crowhurst (b. 1989) is a visual artist from Adelaide, Australia.
After a decade long hiatus, the multi-disciplinary artist has decided to re-enter the public art sphere, showcasing a broad range of works produced in Glasgow UK as well as a collection of early works and concepts.
Subsequent to the diagnosis of a severe immunodeficiency disorder during his five year career in the military, Thom fell into a depressive state and was incapable of pursuing any creative endeavours for many years. Then following the release of the COVID-19 lockdown and a year of travel he has since settled into a studio in Glasgow and rediscovered his artistic flow, happier and healthier than ever. Unashamedly and with little consideration for the conventions of classical painting (though successfully completing a degree in Visual Arts in 2011) he creates work showcasing the soul made visible. Every visceral emotion, personal struggle and accomplishment, love, hatred, frustration and serenity are all meticulously regurgitated onto the canvas as a window into the deepest, darkest, and most unknown parts of the artist.
