Thomas Griffiths

  • Visual Artist

Exchange Place Studios

Thomas Griffiths (b.1993, Bolton, England) is a Sheffield and Manchester based artist. Their practice is influenced by public and hidden spaces. Through playful use of materiality and symbolism, the work aims to infiltrate and divert attention towards the overlooked, highlighting nuances of working-class culture and queer identity. Sensual-yet-gauche representations combine with tongue-in-cheek humour to convey these narratives. With interest in the relationship between identity and space, identifiable objects and symbols are often reimagined and recontextualised, giving a new interpretation (often coded) in relation to the queer lens.

Currently Studying an MFA at The Manchester School of Art. They graduated with Distinction MA, Manchester School of Art (2023), School of the Damned (2022), First Class BA (Hons) at Sheffield Hallam, (2016) and was awarded Best in Show and S1 Graduate Award.
