ABOUT TOM OF FINLAND

From the perspective of art historians, Tom’s work had an effect on global culture unmatched by that of virtually any other artist. Tom’s work had a defining impact on the way gay men throughout the world were perceived and more importantly, how they perceived themselves. Tom’s work has, therefore, had a ripple effect throughout gay and straight culture, influencing lifestyle, political tolerance, design, fashion and art.

 

Tom’s work is in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including MOCA and LACMA in Los Angeles, MOMA in New York,

SF MOMA, the Art Institute of Chicago and many more.
