A little background on who, what, where & when...no why however

Sonic and visual artist Thomas Bell was born in upstate New York in 1972 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn. From the age of seven, Thomas has been guided through the world of sound while studying guitar, trumpet, piano, upright and electric bass, sitar, steel pans, & percussion. He studied jazz and improvisation at Berklee College of Music and ethnomusicology at Florida State University.

Thomas is a self trained visual artist and works mostly in the abstract with an emphasis on the process of the work itself. Working mostly in the acrylic medium, Thomas' paintings have grown to include collage elements (paper, metal, wood, cloth, found objects) and print and image transfers. Many works are texture based and built-up and de-constructed over time. The process of the creation is what brings about the piece as most works are improvisations. Thomas has also been expanding his repertoire to include found object sculptures and thematic work as well. view more artwork here

He is founder of SPREAD ART, an artist-run creative incubator designed to foster new works through collaborations with artists and curators from around the world. SPREAD ART supports emerging artists through group and solo exhibitions, music events, and performance showcases.

He is also the founder and director of Oxygen Music Collective (OMC) which includes numerous musical groups under his direction including the newest project, Geminii Trio with Gregg Jarvis and David CasT.

Thomas' art work is in private collections in throughout the United States.

Hello,
As a Brooklyn artist, I write you today to share Brooklyn’s greatest public artwork.
Why it is unknown is a mystery. Nobody knows it exists.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d2/Arch_and_EmpireSB_-_Grand_Army_Plaza_Brooklyn.jpg
The Tower of the Empire State Building bisects the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.
Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux created the framework for this continuing work-in-progress as the Civil War ended, 25 years before the Arch, 65 years before the Tower, 105 years before the Mirador, and 145 years before I stumbled across it.

In starting the “Grand Army Plaza” group here at Brooklyn Arts Project, I hope to share ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect and promote this View as an “historic visual corridor.” Building Six of Atlantic Yards threatens to eclipse the view.
Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians.
Your friend, Richard
