Thomas Schaller lives in Los Angeles, California.
After a career as an architect in New York City of twenty years, he now devotes himself full-time to artwork in the watercolor medium.
Still, his paintings reflect this past career clearly: Thomas’ paintings are full of surprising uses of perspective and shape. He’s a versatile painter who is outstanding in landscapes to skylines and superb in painting buildings and other big structures.
Thomas has long been considered one of the foremost architectural artists in the world. In the field, he has won every major award for his artwork – including being a two-time recipient of the Hugh Ferriss Memorial Prize. He has authored two books ; the best-selling, and AIA award of merit winner, Architecture in Watercolor,and The Art of Architectural Drawing. He is increasingly in demand internationally to conduct his watercolor workshop series, “The Architecture of Light”. His strengths as a teacher are to emphasize composition over technique or medium, and light and atmosphere over specific subject matter.
His artwork is collected and exhibited around the world.
