Tom Komala                           back to gallery artists

Tom loves studying nature and capturing images in oil and pastel while on location. From glistening pagodas to whitewashed villages, Moroccan bazaars to the California coast Komala paints from life and captures the vitality and uniqueness of each diverse subject.

Tom Komala is a classically trained artist and graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Growing up in Chicago, he found early inspiration at the Art Institute frequently studying the work of John Singer Sargent, J.M.W.Turner, George Innes and Mary Cassat along with the many French Impressionists in the collection. Also, while studying at the Academy, Tom was privileged to attend private lessons in sculpture with Olivier Rodin who had studied with his renowned uncle, August Rodin ( The Thinker, The Kiss, Balzac, etc.). After finishing his studies in Chicago, Tom left for Santa Fe continuing his studies in portraiture with Bettina Steinke and landscape painting with Robert Lougheed.

Artistic and cultural studies on location include Austria, Belgium, Burma, Cambodia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico, Monaco, Morocco, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and Thailand. He presently resides in Denver where he paints local landscapes and subject matter as well as those encountered on his travels.
