Thomas Kuntz is a contemporary artist fighting to bring ancient arcana and modern technologies together as weapons for aesthetic enlightenment.

His father, a surgeon, and his mother, a folk artist and doll maker, both provided the necessary genepool and a stimulating enviroment for him to grow into early on.

Thomas has been working constantly as a professional artist since 1986, but his private projects tend to feature the mysterious, uncanny, sometimes darkly horrific and bittersweet sad aspects of human nature. He has devoted a lifetime to aquire the skills of designer, sculptor, mechanician, automatist, animator, modelmaker, painter and conceptualist.

In this franchised world of branding, globalization, automation, compartmentalization and the subsequent general shrinkage and decline of craftsmanship, Thomas is in fact a dying breed and ARTOMIC is a bonafide anomalie. His inspirations span the centuries and are cross-pollinated in subject matter and approach. Dada-surrealism, mechanical engineering, architecture, atom-age kitsch, erotica, exotica, classical renaissance, horology, anthropology, artificial life/androides and anatomy to name just a few. It is not uncommon to see his projects packaged with a strong dose of "gallows humor" theatrics and magic.
