Chicago artist Thomas Fedro creates abstract art with zing and boundless humor. His original innovations of creative and playful discovery incorporate a combination of cubist collage and whimsical pop art that have an addictive rhythm all their own. Large paintings, deep colors, big features and bold lines that seem to be electrically charged represent an exiting way of seeing and experiencing the modern world through his eyes.
Tom lives and works in Wheeling, IL just outside of Chicago with his son Jordan. He attended Valparaiso University and The Illinois Institute of Art. He has owned several galleries in the Chicagoland area. 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", Toogood 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.
