Tom Townsey art

Hello, my name is Tom Townsey.

I'm a Norwegian/Danish artist with a great French heart.

My artwork is inspired by many years of travelling around the Côte d'Azur in France.

I have a profound passion for the French cities and their cultural sights, which have so much history.

Hopefully I can contribute to renew the magnificence of these fantastic cultural treasures by displaying them in a new light. And perhaps give you a way to connect with a special memorie of a beloved place at the Côte d'Azur.



My mission
We have all been giving this one wonderful life. The responsibility to get the maximum out of it, is entirely upon ourselves.

When I was about to turn 60, I decided to step outside of the addictive treadmill, that we all know to well, and start a new way of living. A way where I was in charge and where I could combine my interests for travelling with my interest in the French culture and making artwork.

My art
Today I understand much better why so many painters - especially the great painters like Picasso, Chagall and Matisse - were drawn to the Côte d'Azur. The ambient light and the atmosphere at the beautiful coastline is just so inspiring and captivating.

And these 3 painters in particular together with Fernand Léger has inspired me to my style of artwork - an eclectic composure of styles in both time and colors.

I hope you'll find an art print or poster that you fancy and would like to hang it in your space - or perhaps give it as a present.

Cordialement / Sincerely
Tom Townsey
