Tom Young is an artist based in Beirut and London whose architectural training informs his interest in light and space. He makes sketches from life, and often supported by photos, filters these experiences through memory in the studio. He combines thick impasto oil and thin watercolour washes. He is interested in blurring the boundaries between realism and abstraction, and the paradox of capturing a sense of time and inner light in a still image. Young often exhibits paintings as site-specific installations which grow from the buildings he work in, such as the Hammam Al Jadeed in Saida. Find him on Twitter @tomyoungart.
