Thomas Arvid captures our wonder with his over sized still life compositions of wine and the rituals surrounding it.
Arvid astounds viewers with the intricate details of his images and with his mastery of light, depth, and reflection.
Arvid is passionate about art and wine: a collector of both, he strives to capture the pleasure of a life well-lived on each canvas.
Arvid’s approach to wine and painting is surprising, given his background as a Detroit native raised to parlay his inherent artistic talent into a secure job in the industrial complex.
According to Arvid, “Wine is a great subject because people are familiar with it; they really connect to it. My paintings are really the landscapes between people sharing wine – it’s amazing that my collectors find personal fulfillment in my work, especially when I’m just doing what I love.”
