Imagine careening down the track on a half ton of horseflesh doing 40 MPH. Think of the jockey balancing himself motionlessly on top of his mount with no safety net.

Visualize the bright colors of the jockeys’ silks, the flare of the horses’ nostrils, the excitement of horseracing. Some would consider the world of thoroughbred horseracing as an art form and the riders who guide their mounts as artists.

About Tom Chapman

“I am a former jockey-turned artist and many of my fans thought many of my riding feats were works of art. Now my art takes a more traditional form. Instead of riding horses, I paint them. I also paint just about everything else from wildlife, to birds, to chickens.

“Because of my background in horseracing and my knowledge of horse anatomy my paintings are accurately depicted. My medium is oil on canvas of all different sizes. I’ve taken a few private lessons to learn about color mixing and values but for all practical purposes, I’m self-taught.

“Realism is the style I use for the most part but I’ve dabbled in impressionism also. I not only capture the grace and beauty of my subjects, but also the raw power and energy that equine athletes exude. My dramatic use of color, light, and shadow display the excitement of horse racing at its very best.”
