About the Artist
Tom Pearman is a masters graduate from the Royal College of Art. The majority of Pearman’s work is commissioned-based public art exploring architecture, design and creative, collaborative approaches to improving our built environment. He has successfully completed several large-scale public art projects.
Clients include architectural firms, private and public galleries, the NHS, public art commissioning agencies and local authorities. Employing a rich diversity of mediums, such as glass, concrete, plastic, photography and vitreous enamel has enabled him to deliver and exhibit a variety of exciting and engaging contemporary projects.
His work in the public realm involves collating, interpreting and presenting a variety of stories and information. Sometimes the outcome is an interpretation of that gathers the material and other times that information is one of the main components of the work itself. Presented in a variety of different formats and scales, from large commissioned architectural glass works to screen-print on paper Pearman’s work succinctly distils the essence a location.
