Bio             

Jacklord Tomas (b. 1983) is a designer and painter from Honolulu, Hawai’i. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

Jacklord holds a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Woodbury University, Burbank, California, and a Bachelor's in Industrial and Product Design from The Art Institute of California Hollywood. His education and professional experience in Hawai’i, Latin America, Southern California and Europe have been very influential in his approach to abstract painting and functional design concepts.

Jack incorporates a beguiling language of color and light in his application, often stressing texture in his works on canvas and paper. The result is a transcendent dialogue between place, space, scale, often suggesting specific locations from his travels. The work embodies the struggle and void necessary for vitality and existence to thrive, bringing the immediacy of the moment to the viewer.

The work welcomes the one into a sensory relationship, encouraging contemplation of the past together with directness of the present, sharing a personal vision for the future. His process allows for life to be invigorating and endearing.
