Tom Anastasios Megalis is a first generation Greek American. Much of Tom’s eclectic whimsical work is inspired by the discarded materials he finds on the streets. Tom believes the old wood, metal, fabric and even paints have a story and character that can be translated to his art. “Instead of going to the landfill, the old materials become art. Where some people see old useless items, I see beauty, I see history,” says Megalis.
