   Tommy Hite is a contemporary artist from Honolulu Hawai'i, currently based in Brooklyn New York. Hite's work begins with the overlooked. The work's strong representative imagery paired with its open ended quality and repetitive whimsical motif coaxes the audience to produce their own transcription. Hite emulates objects and vistas that resemble his surroundings and employs the concept of fine and classical art upon them. Found objects are often adhered to the two dimensional work as represented relics, the result is both a construction of expressions and statements of culture as well as an effort to enable escapism.

    Tommy Hite received his BFA in the area of painting from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa in 2017 and has since continued his professional career as a contemporary artist, participating in various group shows in addition to producing multiple solo exhibitions.
