More Than Words

Graduating from New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts and receiving his MFA in Photography and MA in Visual Criticism from California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco, Hank Willis Thomas is no stranger to the art world. His critical and important body of work has brought attention to his oeuvre a photo conceptual artist. He often produces work that respond to commercialism, hybrid identity and mass-consumerism that exist in our contemporary society. He is not only one of the up-and-coming American Photographers to watch today, but Thomas is an outstanding and respected scholar, who has lectured at Yale University, and Princeton University as well as Maryland Institute College of Art, CCA, and of course ICP/Bard. It is always exciting to see the New York-based artist year after year.
