About the Artist

1966 Milan, Italy

Tom Porta was born in 1966 in Milan, Italy, to middle class parents – his father being an industrial designer. He developed a strong interest in art at a very early age. Drawing was Tom’s favorite childhood pastime, and he soon became an avid fan of comics, spending an unusual amount of time

sketching and pencilling superheroes. His innate artistic talent was by then very clear: wherever he’d go, he would take along a sketch pad and drew incessantly .
In 1988, after graduating as Maestro D’Arte from Istituto Statale d’Arte, he ventured into a wide variety of art forms, and begun a successful career in illustration and photography.

From 1986 to 1994 Tom lived and worked in Germany, France, Japan and the United States, collecting life experiences that later had a fundamental influence on his art works. In 2003, he finally found his fullest expression in oil colors and canvas, and he began painting full time, obsessively.

He achieved immediate success, becoming a preminent figure in the contemporary art scene, and in 2007 he was listed in the 100 top Italian artists. The artist has been featured in prestigious catalogues such as “500 Years of Italian Paintings”, Sotheby’s and Christie’s volumes, and his works have been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions.

Porta is now based in Milan, where he owns an atelier, and devotes himself to an artistic production that spans from historical works (Inferno 1914-1918 ) to landscapes and conceptual works (Once and For Whole).
The artist’s prolific career is being rewarded by an international success.
