Plastic Fantastic By TOMAAS
This surreal photography series is capturing the ethereal beauty of a woman adorned with plastic items we use every day, such as plastic bottles, plastic bags, plastic forks, plastic straws, tubes, etc. The idea was to demonstrate that there are beauty and artistic potential in both artificial and natural objects. By creating art made from plastic and repurposing them in a creative and thought-provoking way, I try to unveil to the viewer the conscious design decisions behind each and every product — products that we unthinkingly consume every day at a rapid rate, or ones that we might condemn for their wastefulness. By immortalizing the designs, textures, and colors of a found object in a photograph, I hope to present to the viewer beauty where we might have seen nothing before, fostering a fleeting-yet-deep appreciation of these materials which permeate our present-day human habitats. It`s an exceptional depiction of plastic awareness in an artistic expression. The recycled plastic material is an overwhelming textile with a versatile significance in our everyday life. It is the most common material used by the people becoming an integral part of our existence. This ubiquity of synthetic structure can also establish the meaning of “the new black” among materials that in other words can result in “fantastic” connotation.

Lives and Works: Paris
TOMAAS, born in Hamburg, Germany, is a visual artist working primarily in the medium of photography. After having lived in New York City for 18 years his studio atelier is based in Paris Montmartre since 2014.
TOMAAS is known for creating surreal and emotionally compelling artworks often with a painterly quality that are dramatic, ethereal, frequently haunting and always vibrant in their color choices.
Inspired by great representatives of surrealism and romanticism such as Salvador Dali, Giorgio De Chirico and Eugène Delacroix, he uses exquisite photo manipulation and conceptual ideas to create iconic images with intricate and emotive nature that often challenge the current visual culture.
TOMAAS' artworks stands apart from the conventional photographic presentations of emotion and beauty by infusing the qualities of fine art painting while distorting and challenging society's traditional notions of beauty. He produces images that not only stand on their own as story-filled works of beauty, but also as alternative perspectives of life in our contemporary society.
An alchemist behind the lens, TOMAAS transforms ordinary objects into objects d’art that are timeless and artistically inspiring. Ranging from bursts of acid-bright colors that exude a palpable eroticism to images of otherworldly innocence and mystery turning his subjects into living sculptures of experimental beauty.
His artworks have been published in numerous international publications such as Vogue Italia, W Magazine, VS, Marie Claire, Elle, Schoen etc.
TOMAAS artworks have been exhibited in several New York galleries. In 2017 he participated in a two month long group exhibition with David LaChapelle and Liu Bolin at the prestigious “Art District Gallery” - Le Royal Monceau Raffles in Paris, France. In 2017 he had been invited to showcase his work at the world-famous Venice Biennale. At the ArtUp 2019 a contemporary art fair organised by the Lille Grand Palais exhibition and congress center which attracts over 40000 visitors and brings together over 100 galleries.
