Enrico Miguel Thomas: “The Subway Artist of New York”
Enrico Miguel Thomas is an emerging New York City Artist, also known as the “The Subway Artist of New York”. His work has been locally featured on NY1 news and Fox 5. His art has also been reviewed by amNY newspaper and most recently the New York Times. He has also received international exposure having had his work featured on Mesamashi TV of Japan and also reviewed by La Stampa newspaper of Italy.
Enrico Miguel Thomas earned a BFA from his alma mater, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York two years ago, ending his studies there with an exhibition about construction equipment and industrial spaces. After graduating he decided to continue in this artistic genre by extending his ideas into the New York City Transit System. Eventually Enrico would use the actual New York City Subway map as his drawing paper, resulting in a most interesting collaboration of his signature architectural style with the abstract quality of the subway map.
Enrico has had the opportunity recently to exhibit his work at The Adam Clayton Powell State Building and has also received grants for his unwavering dedication to drawing and painting from both Change Inc. founded by Robert Rauschenberg and The Wheeler Foundation. Enrico is currently being filmed for a documentary about the arts in the New York City Subway and will also have a book written about his life.
