Thomas Wimberly III is an artist and designer now based out of Los Angeles. After earning his BFA in Graphic Design from Louisiana State University he has been acting as an art director and designer, both for local agencies and for himself as a freelancer.
In 2015, Thomas and his close friend Chase Mullen opened “Unit 7”- their shared studio-space that occasionally doubled as a pop-up gallery. Since then, he’s spent his time returning to the fine art world, first exploring the styles of his inspirations, before beginning to develop his own style in late 2017.
In November 2017, Thomas, along with a few other emerging artists, was selected out of a group of 300+ to show at Shepard Fairey’s gallery, “Subliminal Projects” for “PEACE” an exhibit showcasing never before seen photos by Jim Marshall. Thanks to the exhibit, he was able to stay in touch with Shepard and eventually land a job at his design agency, “Studio Number One” where he currently works.
Thomas currently lives in LA with his wife Brooke, and their bulldog, Macintosh.
