About Tom



' VOY A VOLAR

DIJO EL GUSANO.

TODOS SE RIERON.

EXCEPTO LAS MARIPOSAS.



' AND THOSE WHO WERE

SEEN DANCING WERE

THOUGHT TO BE INSANE

BY THOSE WHO COULD

NOT HEAR THE MUSIC' *

 

*Nietzsche


        German painter Tom F. Klein is meticulously observing the everyday, the environment, his fellow human beings. Viewing a reflection in a window, to note a short moment in time, perceive a glance, a detail on the face of a travel companion in the subway, those all are the sources of his work from which scattered pieces he gets his inspirations and from where his concepts develop.

         

        Tom is obsessed with human beauty and he finds it in any ethnic group. Like an explorer, he is always looking for the irrational, fabulous, invisible and the romantic behind peoples appearances.

He longs to reveal the balance between sobriety and overwhelming beauty by capturing emotions and moods that are difficult to put into words.

 

       'When I look into my models face it becomes the world for me. Their beauty leave me breathless and

fall in love and want to give that sweet moment of romance to the rest of the world. So I paint what I see

and feel and I let go and hope, that once the work is finished, the viewer will be surprised to see what he might have overlooked and surrenders and drifts away into another world.'

 

       Tom's portraits are refreshingly different and arouse a new need for sensuality, sensitivity and

the appreciation of beauty, ...also of the male beauty.

 

        'It is very important for me to bring 'the man' as a body of art back into interest. The male beauty in arts

give us an insight into what is special about masculinity, a vulnerable, sensual side is revealed to us.

Lately a new kind of man, of male beauty has emerged, a strong man with a touch of femininity which makes

'the man' even more interesting. Without men art would be much poorer.'

 

        Vivid contrasts and the fearless use of flashy colors, playing with different techniques and looks, 

as well as painting in 'black and white', but maintaining his 'handwriting', Tom's work pulls us under its spell. Painting pronounced shadows to display his models features and to deepen the mystery which is veiled behind the face. The effect is bold, but does not annihilate the subject.

 

        Tom lived many years in Germany, Argentina, México and China and spent much time in the USA.

In 2020 he moved to Hamburg.

 

        Some of his paintings now hang in private collections in Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok, Malaysia, México City, Bogotá, Ireland, Hamburg and Berlin.
