Biography  
Les Thomas


Les Thomas has been painting for nearly 25 years. He began painting small still lifes and landscapes, in a style similar to what the French historically referred to as intimist or petty bourgeois painting.

Although he makes much larger paintings now, he remains a firm believer in art for art's sake, rather than art for the sake of any reason beyond those implied by the work of art itself. He says he is not a wildlife artist. "The figures, landscapes, or animals depicted in my paintings are to be understood as pretexts for the creation of the paintings themselves," he said.
