JPT (Philip James Thompson) dop leaving school to 16 years and worked in a variety of jobs in the industrial city of Birmingham, he decided to pursue a career as a goldsmith, completing his training at the School of Jewellery in his city.

Awarded a good experience working in laboratories and factories of the "Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham 'continues his career by taking a job in a jewelry store in the ancient spa town of Bath. He discovers a way of life very different from that of his hometown. The culture shock induces in him a strong desire to understand the reason for this difference and the pressing feeling of frustration led him to express himself through painting.

In the absence of the typical academic artistic training, uses traditional materials of painting, canvas and acrylic, with a look intact and untouched, allowing him to establish its own rules of conduct in his works.

An invitation to visit Rome JPT leads to a year of frequent short trips in the capital.

His point of view is not that of a tourist. Initially uninterested in his surroundings, were then the people and their culture to capture his attention. It is these constant transitions between the two cultures, combined in the mind of the artist, who will be transferred to the canvas.

Rome became the catalyst for this process conscious work. For this reason the artist has felt the need to be closer to its source of inspiration, and moved for a longer period in the capital.

During his stay has undertaken an approach increasingly anthropological, aimed at the study of the social classes in the history of Rome, approach through which seeks to understand and decipher, even making a comparison with its city of origin, the causes of contemporary culture and its possible evolution.
