Tom Sanford is a Harlem-based artist whose work is exhibited extensively in museums and galleries around the world. His paintings, which might be considered a sort of lowbrow conceptual art, reflect a deep ambivalence about the American cultural condition. His subjects are numerous and vary widely, ranging from history paintings depicting celebrity assassinations, to icon paintings of gangsta rappers, to elaborate cosmologies weaved together from Hollywood movies to contemporary genre paintings of bars and subways cars. Most recently the artist has been commissioning copies of old master paintings from workshops in China and painting over them in his studio. Tom was born in Bronxville NY in 1975 and later received a BA from Columbia University then an MFA from Hunter College.” Follow Tom on instagram @uberkunst
