Art Buff: Tom Webb

Where are you from originally?
Akron NY
What is your medium?

Black and white acrylics and inks
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I draw inspiration from day to day life. 
Whether it’s from what I’m reading at the time or listening to, it all gets collected and used at some point.
What is your preferred subject matter?
I try not to keep myself in one specific subject matter. 
If I feel like doing a landscape and then switching to a figure study I will. I feel that focusing on one subject for too long would limit me creatively
How do you feel you can best advance to the next level, or are you most happy where you are now?

I feel that there’s always room for improvement. 
Art should always be evolving and once you become too comfortable with what your doing it becomes a formula and not a style.

What is another medium that you would like to learn? Or that you have already learned?

I’d like to venture into print making. 
I feel it’s something I haven’t tried and that’s what peeks my curiosity.
Is there a purpose to your artwork?
I think the purpose to my artwork is that it gives me a feeling that I am contributing something to this world. 
The thought of only going to work and not aspiring to anything more seems like a waste to me.
How often do you work on your art?

I’m usually working on something every day.
What or who first prompted you to venture into the art world?

My Mother and Grandmother have had artistic backgrounds and encouraged me to stick with it over the years.

Have you been schooled in art? Are you planning on attending art school? If so, where?
I went to NCCC for fine arts.


Where is your favorite venue in Buffalo to exhibit?

If I had to choose a favorite I’d have to say 464 Gallery. 
It’s been a place where I’ve been encouraged to grow as an artist and met a lot of friends along the way.
Where did you learn your craft?
I’ve always been into art, ever since elementary school. 
It’s grown ever since then and has always been a main staple in life.
