About Thomas Juul-Jensen.

Alone & Together is usually the curating theme of my exhibitions.
Alone or Together are the two options I have with the subject matter, as a figurative artist.
Sex, spaces and the starkness of the image are of interest to my work.
Political, religious and provocative statements are not of interest to my work.

“He has own unique style”! This was the report card comment from Thomas’ art teacher when he attended primary school in Ireland, and he has tried to live up to that ever since. Born into a Danish family, he left Ireland at the age of 17 just like his art hero, Francis Bacon.

Doing a reverse Michelangelo, Thomas decided that architecture was to be the starting point of his art career. Learning how to design a museum and understanding the possibilities of the ‘wall’ would benefit his art and curating skills later on.

The first year of architecture school involved lectures about staging an object and reading books such as ‘Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance”. Life drawing subjects during exchange semesters lay the foundation for his interest in the human body within his art. His studies also involved a life-changing field trip to study the Sydney Opera House and an apprenticeship with his architecture hero, Bjarke Ingels. During his BIG internships in both Copenhagen and New York, Thomas acquired more knowledge than five years of architecture school combined.

After living and working in Lucca for the past year and a half, Thomas recently moved to Rome (Trastevere), where he shares a studio with six other artists and dedicates himself 100% to his art and studio life!
