(1948 - living) U.S.A.
Thomas was born in 1948 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, as were his parents. Like them as well, he had a Catholic upbringing and a Catholic school education. As a youth, his working class world offered him religious objects as well as sounds and colors which stimulated his imagination.
He studied art at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and at the School of Fine Arts in Manhattan. Thomas has exhibited and created installations throughout the United States and Europe since 1968 and has received much critical attention in the art press.
Thomas lives and works in New York City.
