Ryan Sangalang — Featured Work

I’m a surreal fine art photographer that specializes in combining travel photos to create photomontages. I once sat on a plane for 27 hours to explore the hot jungles of Africa and capture photos of lions and giraffes for my work. My goal is to create the most unique photomontages by combining images from around the world.

I’ve traveled to over 23 countries to collect photos and find inspiration. I’ve found gratefulness for life and strong craving for art.
This craving has also driven me to create my own art. Each experience strengthens my resolve to travel and enjoy artistic inspiration.

ART STATEMENT – TREES
Thom Wright  2013

Big trees have long inspired humans beyond the utilitarian resource they provide.  Their spirit is uplifting; they grow in annual cycles, becoming massive, towering and long lived wonders. There is extraordinary strength in their limbs and branches, and yet they rhythmically move with the wind.  Each is unique, yet is constantly changing with time and season.  They thrive with earth, water and sun to benefit man and the environment, and symbolically they join the earth with the sky.  In my Cubist and expressionistic painting style, I paint abstractions of these qualities of trees.

Thom Wright

Thom Wright has combined his passions for art and engineering, and his two practices benefited from each other. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he joined the U. S. Navy after high school and then returned home to go to college. After graduating in 1970 with a BA and MA in mathematics from UCLA and CSULA, he began a successful, 32 year career in aerospace. While working in advanced space systems and technologies development, he began taking art and art history courses at night at local community colleges. He began selling art and successfully entering competitive art shows in 1978.

His interest initially centered in abstract landscape and figurative painting, influenced both by 20th century European modernists and American expressionists. Beginning in 1986, his subject matter moved toward contemporary issues, including technology, geopolitics, and the global environment. His abstract painting style also migrated towards inclusion of industrial materials, found objects and mixed media, which reflect influences of his technical background. These issues and processes continue in his art work.

Desiring to improve his skills, theory and knowledge in art, he took early retirement from the Boeing Corp. in 1999 and entered art school full time. In May, 2006, he completed the MFA program in Drawing and Painting at California State University, Long Beach.
