Tom was raised in SoCal on a steady beach-rat diet of Ed Roth, Mad Magazine and Surfer Magazine’s Rick Griffin. After over 20 years in the Southern California surfing and apparel industry, Tom started painting for public exhibition under his nickname “Big Toe” in 2006. Tom creates art with a casual, tongue-in-cheek sense of humor and playful eroticism that offers a nostalgic escape in our fast-paced and ever-changing world. Big Toe’s art is inspired by the confluence of Tiki, Kustom and Surf culture. The fusion of these seemingly disparate lifestyles has always been an obvious one to the artist: all 3 are outsider ways of life.
