This book recounts his amazing journey to freedom and how he eventually helped to put an end to slavery.

Paul Thomas

Since 2004 Paul Thomas has spent his time travelling between Australia and Europe. His work reflects this cultural diversity in drawings and paintings that explore shared mythologies and narratives. Having recently finished a series of drawings that dealt with Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, he is now working with the diverse flora and fauna of Australia. The dramatic and inventive landscape allows him the freedom to develop new projects outside of his usual context and challenges his own position as a European artist.
