Tom Thordarson, or “THOR” as he is nick named by friends and collectors, is a painter, designer and storyteller, renowned for his inventive vision and whimsical characterizations of our world. His life as an artist began when he was just old enough to hold a pencil, and art would soon become a powerful tool that he would use to communicate his endless spirit of adventure.
After over 25 years in the entertainment industry, THOR still reminisces back to his time spent on both his long summers on Hawaii’s sun soaked beaches with his cousins, and the magical childhood adventures with his family in Los Angeles. The early years of his life have shaped the mind and spirit felt in all THOR’s work to this day which is displayed by his uncanny ability to take us into truly enchanting places, luring the viewer’s desire to step into his paintings and be part of his stories. THOR relates to the words of John Lasseter, a principal creative officer for Pixar who says: “The connection you make with your audience is an emotional connection…the audience can’t be told to feel a certain way. They have to discover it themselves!”
