Tommy Canales Burns is a Los Angeles transplant living in Boyle Heights. Originally from Texas, his work deals with culture clashes and the individual. Collective consciousness, subcultures, subconscious, and how it shapes reality are all depicted in Tommy's sometimes outspoken works, and challenges the viewer to see far beyond. "I seek out to subvert the paradigm, transform, aspire to transcend. I just paint on stuff." - Tommy
Working from murals, videography, photography, and in the field and as studio artist, Tommy seeks to shape the world around him by urging the viewer to engage in dialogue. Tommy's works are characterized by an intricate weaving of elements combing movement, form, and a profusion of color.
Tommy earned a BA Bachelors of Fine Arts as well as a degree in media studies from Pitzer college, and is a recent graduate with a MFA from Claremont Graduate School.
