My name is Thomas Fluharty and this is my exclusive online showcase for my paintings.
After investing more than thirty years of editorial and storyboard work creating images for clients, I decided to create a body of work for me, and for the enjoyment of others, painting what I love and focusing on pop culture icons.
I was classically trained in oils in the Dutch and Flemish technique, and have been heavily inspired by painting icons William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and Rembrandt. Their methods seemed like a logical way to portray contemporary pop-culture icons, who have transcended into a larger than life type status.
So this site is where my two great passions meet: portrait caricatures and oils.
And I am psyched to share them with you. I have an online store where I sell all my original paintings. Each painting or any image on this site can also be purchased as a print. To inquire or place an order email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much,
