Thomas Dellert, Target the fist of Muhammad Ali

Thomas Dellert

Presentation

Thomas Dellert-Bergh also known as Thomas Dellacroix and Tommy Dollar a name given to him by American Pop artist Andy Warhol (born 12 July 1963) is a Swedish multimedia artist, photographer, painter, actor, singer, songwriter, poet, filmmaker, director, fashion designer, and interior decorator.

TD THE PHOTOGRAPHER  

As a  contemporary art photographer, he has had as well over 50 international exhibits in museums and galleries, as many international art photography magazine covers, and extensive reportage. Photo Scandinavia did the biggest single reportage in the history of the magazine since its start, when on 11 pages, they showed 48 pictures of Dellacroix & Dellfina."Self-portraits have practically existed since the beginning of art, but to do "self-portraits of others" it seems to be something that Dellacroix and Dellfina are quite alone with on the artistic scene. Contemporary, it feels both visually and meaningfully wise. It is an art form on the borderline between reality and illusion." Jan Almlöf, editor in chief of PHOTO (Foto) Scandinavia

As a contemporary, provocative art photographer he has worked under the name of Dellacroix in symbiosis with former wife and partner Agnieszka Dellert-Dellfina between 2001 to 2012 when they divorced and went separate ways. He has also collaborated with photographer Ellen von Unwerth, photographer Bruno Ehrs photographer Raphael Yoshitomi, and  photographer Philipp Mueller. 

He now lives and work with Ruby Vava Venezia since 2013.

TD THE CONTEMPORARY VISUAL ARTIST

He has had over 100 International exhibitions during the last 30 years. He is represented in collections like The Absolut Vodka Collection, The Heinz collection the Swedish Royal family Collection, and in several museums, like the . He has been the official artist for both Absolut Vodka and Mercedes Benz. Death and fame is a central theme in Dellert's works, and he uses irony and humor mixed with horror as one of his main tools. His work has a strong, humanistic approach, and he uses powerful images to show the horrors of war and genocide. He warns about all fanatical, racial and fundamentalistic thinking in his art. After meeting Andy Warhol in 1976 he made a series of hand printed silk screens in collaboration with his childhood friends Bruno Ehrs and Rainer Laakso. This art prints was presented to Warhol in his Factory in new York in 1980.

 A well documented event. He inspired Warhol with his camouflage prints that later became Warhols own art expression.The same happened with artist Jean Michel Basquiat who visited Dellert's exhibit in New York 1982. All paintings by Dellert was then framed with ropes in larger than canvas wood frames. After the exhibit Thomas left all frames on the street outside the art gallery on St Marks Place  a few meters away from the home of Basquiat. He brought them home and this new framing technique became his trademark.

Dellert works with painting, collage, photography, installation, video, hand printed silk screen, and junk sculpture.
