Tom lives and works in Galicia, Spain. He studied Art and Design at Leeds College of Art and Graphic Design BA at Kingston University, London.
His practice is underpinned by contrasts of colour, texture and mark making. It questions the viewer's perspective, offering reference to both aerial and landscape compositions. His practice is constantly evolving and exploring the different qualities of both conventional media and found objects. Similarly, the inspiration for each work also varies, from street art, urban decay and abandoned buildings to abstract expressionists such as Willem de Kooning, Gillian Ayres and Joan Mitchell.
Tom's work celebrates the differences between man and nature, but also aims to prompt a change in the way we treat our surroundings and ultimately inspire an appreciation of opposites.
Selected exhibitions include ‘Great North Art Show’ at Ripon Cathedral, UK / ‘Tom Glendenning: Grass is greener’ Solo Exhibition at Tabula Rasa, Spain / ‘Tom Glendenning: Libra’ Solo Exhibition at Savoy, Spain / ‘Myth of the Beast’ Group Exhibition at Wharf Chambers, UK.
