Thomas kinkade 1

  1. 1. Thomas Kinkade (born January 19, 1958 in Sacramento, California ) is an American painter of popular and commercial realistic , bucolic , and idyllic subjects. He is notable for the mass marketing of his work as printed reproductions and other licensed products via The Thomas Kinkade Company. He characterizes himself as "Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light," a phrase he protects through trademark , and likes to be known as "America's most-collected living artist".Media Arts, the publicly-traded company that licenses and sells Kinkade's products, claims that 1 in 20 homes in the U.S. feature some form of Thomas Kinkade’s art. Kinkade has received criticism for the extent to which he has commercialized his art—for example, selling his prints on the QVC home shopping network. Others have written that his paintings are merely kitsch , without substance, and have described them as chocolate box art . Created by gabriel voiculescu with photos posted by Dio Gyula on INTERNET
