Welcome to the Blair Thorson website, featuring his artwork from the:

 
"All Over the Map" is the best way to describe Blair's artwork. His instantly recognizable watercolours painted on maps feature sybjects that are indigenous to the area depicted, or objects of historical or cultural interest.  His artwork reflects the Northern lands in which he lives and has travelled.
          Blair feels that painting on a map captures time, place and space on a two dimensional surface as well as keeping them out of thye landfill.  He has added the element of copper to his artwork to help to emphasize the story being told by the image in the painting.  Every piece is an Original, he does not make prints. 


What's New:  Blair had a busy summer with Arts in the Park, Adaka Cultural Festival, Augusto Festival, Great Northern Arts Festival and teaching Copper Tooling Classes.  He is now working in his studio doing commissions and ever expanding his artistic experiences.
