Local Abstract Artist Offers New Painting for One Million Dollars
James Thomas Sr aka J. Thomas Luxury decided to offer his one of a kind painting for a million dollars because he could, and he truly believes it is a masterpiece.
"I actually laughed at the thought at first, then I began to think, why not? I know the passion that goes into my art and you can't put a price tag on passion." Art is very subjective to the individual and I believe that if there are 5 Billion people in the world, there must be one person who will pay one million dollars for a J. Thomas Luxury Original Painting!
Art became a major part of his life after the murder of his brother in 2016 in South Central Los Angeles. "I was never interested in Art." Thomas said recently. "I can't even draw, however I found that when my love for music is fused with painting, I am transported to a world of creativity I never knew existed!! "I started listening to music while painting and just allowing my hands to create what the music made me feel. The result was a spiritual experience and a new love for painting.
All my paintings are named after the song I listen to while creating and I absolutely love creating now!!
The "Million Dollar Masterpiece"
Thomas had his first successful "Art and Wine Soiree" in June 2017. He had a month long showing at the Anaheim Sheraton Resort in Anaheim, California. His work has appeared at the Newport Beach Art Show, The Beverly Hills Art Festival, Culver City Arts Show, DTLA Art Show and prior to the Covid 19 pandemic his art was accepted into the prestigious "Pancake and Beer Art Show." He will be hosting his second virtual art show via ZOOM on August 15, 2020 at 8:00 pm (pst).
