The Art of Thomas Fedro

Chicago artist Tom Fedro creates art that makes you smile out loud. A combination of urban landscapes and pop art faces that focus on composition and color.

Tom's bright colored, bold whimsical art warms the heart and celebrates the joy brought to our lives by the diverse nature of our species.

Tom lives and works in Mt. Prospect, IL just outside of Chicago with his wife Alicia and son Jordan. He attended Valparaiso University and The Illinois Institute of Art.

He and his wife owned a gallery for many years in Chicago. Currently, he is represented by galleries in the US and Europe and recent special projects include pieces commissioned for the Broadway show "Rent", the 40th anniversary of "The Second City", Toodgood Wineries, Sweet Riot Candy Co. and Chicago's "Cow's on Parade". Corporate commissions include pieces for IBM, Hotel Allegro in Chicago, historic Navy Pier and Washburn Guitars.

There's just something about these simple abstract faces, I love the bright colors and the compositions. His work is much appreciated here!

Enjoy :)
