Shaun’s unique artistic style has an array of influences from throughout his life. Living in places outside of the SoCal bubble such as Australia and traveling to surf destinations like Mexico, Nicaragua, and Hawaii have all had great impacts on his artistic style and approach.
SHAUN THOMAS’ LAGUNA BEACH ART GALLERY
At the beginning of 2018, Shaun was simply on the hunt for a larger workspace. After a few trips around Orange County checking out spaces and talking with other artisans and business owners, the idea of possibly opening up his own gallery to view his work slowly began to take over.
Now on the search for the perfect gallery location, Mr. Thomas drove up and down the local orange county coast, eventually stumbling upon a unique location in the beautiful downtown area of Laguna Beach, California. Immediately ideas and visions began to evolve. The old building was in terrible condition inside and out, but Shaun had a particular vision on what type of gallery he wanted to bring to Laguna.
After a few short months, designing layout concepts and executing the full remodel to bring his vision to life, Shaun successfully created an environment unlike the traditional galleries, with a unique experiential approach. In doing so, Mr. Thomas has not only created a great space to view his work, but has really discovered his own unique interior design style. You can really feel it from the moment you walk in the gallery. Thomas Studios has now become a must see Laguna Beach Art Gallery.
