Born and raised in London, Tom Cox is an urban landscape artist with a passion for capturing the everyday on the streets of his hometown. His uses a technique of loose gestural brush marks to capture “the buzz of society” from his perspective. His distinct style can be described as a take on impressionism with a purpose to contain the “raw spontaneity”.  Cox follows life as it unfolds around him, often catching just a glimpse, then filling the gaps with imagination. 

He captures the pulse of London and the energy of city life at the stroke of a brush. His work has been compared to the legendary Edward Hopper and L. S. Lowry for its transient, ever-flowing story of the now. Cox’s current pieces and upcoming sculptural work will be in permanent residence at the Brick.
