Bruce Thorn was born on Chicago’s Southside in November,

1952 and came of age during a time of anti-war protests, the

civil rights movement, widespread police brutality and the

mass cultural upheavals that defined the 1960’s. Thorn

decided early on to become a painter and from the beginning

his artwork reflected the intensity, complexity and

introspection of the times.

Thorn earned a B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of

Chicago in 1975 and an M.F.A. from the University of Illinois

at Chicago in 1987. He has maintained a vibrant art practice

throughout his life. His work has been exhibited in the United

States, Czechoslovakia, Canada and the Netherlands. Thorn is

also a contributing editor with the New Art Examiner.
