This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Photo-Realist painter Thomas Leo Blackwell, born in 1938, started out as an abstract painter influenced by the Pop Art movement.  He moved on to a primary interest in painting large-scale works featuring the gleaming surfaces of machinery, metal and glass, mainly in airplanes and motorcycles, but later in urban store fronts and windows.  He has used photographs from magazines as the source of his subject matter, as well as taking his own photos.

Among other exhibitions, Blackwell has shown his work at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City, and Smithsonian Museum, Washington, D.C. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City, and many more.
