About

Why is this person notable and influential?

From Wikipedia

Prince Varughese Thomas is a multi-media artist who is part of what has come to be known as the Indian Diaspora. Thomas had actually been born in Kuwait, the son of Christian, Malayalam-speaking guest workers from India's southern Kerala state. Being Indian by birth, born in Kuwait, naturalized in the US, and raised primarily between India and the United States, he has always felt outside the dominant culture in which he exists. This sense of being the ‘Other’ has influenced how he views the world, approaches his conceptual concerns, and creates art. With an educational background and degrees in both psychology and art, he investigates and deconstructs complex sociopolitical issues from the interstices in personally expressive ways that humanize his subjects by incorporating a variety of photographic, video, drawing, and installation techniques into his artwork. Thomas currently resides in Houston, Texas. He is an associate professor of art at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. He is represented by Hooks-Epstein Galleries in Houston, Texas.
