It is our pleasure to introduce you to artist Toby Boothman, a British painter taking a modern approach to Renaissance style with his hyperreal nautical scenes. Boothman's dynamic depictions feature bodies and boats at sea with incredible accuracy. To behold a Boothman in person is to feel swept up in the waves and windblown sails.
Toby was born in Bristol in 1973, and began training under Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin, France at the Atelier Neo Medici in 1994. Since then his career has flourished both in the UK and wider Europe, with his residence and studio based in the South of France. Boothman's love for the open water emanates from his work, reflecting his beautiful daily surroundings.
We have been blown away by the accuracy with which Toby Boothman paints and his ability to capture the true essense of sailing is a pleasure to see. As a new artist to Thompson's Galleries, we hope you enjoy these new works as much as we have.
This new collection is now available to purchase and will be exhibited throughout June at 3 Seymour Place, London, W1H 5AZ.
