Thomas Torak is a modern master painter working in the classical tradition. His paintings are known for their breadth and luminosity, rich color and lively brushwork. An expert still life, figure, and landscape painter, Thomas refers to his paintings as visual poetry. His love of classical music is evident in his work. He likes to say he listens to what he is painting. You can often see this in the titles of his work such as Adagio for Peonies or Variations on a Theme by Cezanne. He once had an entire exhibition of Nocturnes inspired by, and dedicated to, Chopin.
