Thrush Holmes

Thrush Holmes is a Toronto-based artist, self-taught in painting and mixed media. His work is spontaneous and experimental, spanning imagery from reclining nudes, matisse-like flowers, and poetic landscapes that contrast with his punk sensibility.

Holmes' recent exhibitions include solo presentations at Library Street Collective (Detroit) and Mike Weiss Gallery (New York); and group exhibitions with Winsor Art Projects (Vancouver), Library Street Collective (Detroit), BEERS London (London, UK), Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), and the Design Exchange (Toronto).

His work has been shown at art fairs internationally including Expo Chicago, Zona Maco (Mexico City), VOLTA NY, and VOLTA Basel; and can be found in the permanent collections of Yusaku Maezawa, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Bedrock Detroit, the Elton John Aids Foundation, Sony Music, Dreamworks Studio, and Def Jam Records, among others.
