Thomas MacGregor is a Scottish Artist living and working in East London. After graduating in Drawing and Painting from ECA he held a residency at ‘The Stand Comedy Club’, resulting in a large number of comedian portraits as well as the omnipresent ‘Stand cowboy’ logo.
Thomas lectured in art at HMP Edinburgh. The prison environment helped to feed some of the social realism within his figurative style, which draws heavily on the Weimar artists such as Beckman, Dix, Grosz, as well as Guston’s early murals.
In 2007 He held a two year long residency in Bolivia, encompassing three solo shows. This added a new and more vibrant dynamic to his work .
Thomas works predominantly as a portrait painter and Illustrator, exhibiting regularly across London and the wider UK.
