The artist translates his personal vision of the environment directly into his art, creating an abstract and multiple projection of the intricate disorder linked to life experiences. Within his visionary landscapes, strongly influenced by the surrounding architecture, a fixed reference point is no longer conceivable. These visual effects are present in both his environmental installations and his studio works, which indeed retain the same dynamism and volumetric characteristic. Thomas Canto is able to convey multiple artistic influences in his work, including Constructivism, Suprematism, Op Art, and Urban Art.
The artist produces an abstract and complex universe, giving rise to new geometries through shadows and light variations. Space and time are fundamental concepts in the artist's works; when facing them, the spectator ceases to be a simple observer, instead, they are immersed in an overall experience that actively transforms their perception.
