|About the AuthorRaised in Dublin, Ireland, Thomas Sheridan is a professional artist currently
living and working in south Sligo under the shadow of the Ox Mountains.
After moving to New York in the mid 1980s, he became a musician playing with
the inl uential Lower East Side goth/post-punk three piece h e Children’s Zoo.
Upon leaving the music business in the early 1990s, Thomas studied as a graphic
designer and went on to enjoy a successful communications career with several
Wall Street investment banks.
Returning to Ireland to pursue his painting career in 1998, he began to write
poetry, satirical essays, short stories and socio-political commentaries on
subjects ranging from Irish politicians, to psychology, media manipulation
and the occult and published in journals and books worldwide.
Thomas’s paintings have been described as, ‘vibrant, contemplative, poetic and
soulful, with an underlying surrealist/symbolist nature’. His inspiration is drawn
from many sources, from the human condition within the real and emotional landscape,
to the nature of reality and relationships. Thomas’ work is in private collections
worldwide and he has been represented by numerous galleries.
“My music, art and writing have been a life-long at empt to create a dialogue
with the society and world around me and as a result, to implement a more
meaningful dialogue with myself.”
