Theo Beck was born in San Francisco in 1974. When he was 12 years old, his parents gave him a paint box for Christmas. He knew as soon as he put brush to paper that he wanted to be an artist.
His artwork is directly influenced by having grown up and lived in San Francisco for most of his life. His paintings reflect the diversity of his surroundings. Having been involved in scenic art and commercial design for most of his career, he decided in 2004 to become a full-time painter.
Says the artist, “I am an explorer, and I use the language of painting to describe my journey.”
When Theo isn’t painting he enjoys surfing and playing the drums in his studio.
