Malmö , Sverige

Thomas Broomé was born 1971 in Malmö, Sweden, he lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. He is educated at Konstfack – University of Arts, Crafts and Design (1997–1999) and Valand Academy (1993–1997).

Broomé moves readily between techniques in his very own universe. With curiosity and thirst for knowledge he retrieves information and fuel from art history, science and philosophy. His interdisciplinary research turns into paintings, drawings, sculptures, videos and installations that mix logic with a little bit of madness. He worked for a long time as an artist together with the Interactive Institute in Stockholm.
