Kim Wuz Here

Stylistically influenced by graffiti, torn layers of city billboards, and old building walls, artist Schmitt Thomas chooses subject matters ranging from personal to controversial, painful to provocative, ironic to bizarre. The artist explains, “Much of what I paint are stories taken from people’s everyday lives, including my own, or statements about common, yet questionable, societal behaviors that have become generally accepted as the norm. Because the “everyday” is something that often gets overlooked or seen with indifference, this body of work is filled with commotion, perplexity, exaggeration and over-simplification in order to grab the viewer’s attention and cause them to really observe, decipher, and hopefully see these everyday happenings from a new perspective.”

Kim Schmitt Thomas was born in 1970 in the Hell’s Kitchen area of NYC to two young actors, then later raised in nearby Bergen County, NJ, where she currently works and resides with her husband and 4 year old twin girls.
