Vilanova i la Geltrú - Barcelona

Tom Roy is an artistic born in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona) and resident in Reus (Tarragona). He works for architecture firms, interior designers and decorators, as well as for brands and agencies. His life took a 360º change a few years ago when he was at the peak of his professional career as a director of an automotive multinational. At that time he was diagnosed with cancer, and “thanks” to it he was able to discover the paint.

His figurative style is very characteristic, denoting empowerment, strength and inner power by representing his characters with large hands and feet, robust limbs, impossible gestures, penetrating looks, a use of vibrant colors and a determined and rough, almost impulsive line. He uses atypical perspectives to enhance the human being’s sense of monumentality, as if they were buildings. Tom Roy uses his art and his personal story as an example of improvement to motivate other people against adversity. His motto is: “We see limitations and barriers where there are really only opportunities.”
