Updates: Thomas Doyle

Artist Thomas Doyle has been a busy guy. After sending a few new pieces to LeBasse Projects for the Beyond Eden Fair he managed to find time for interviews and editorial work for Newsweek.

Doyle has an interview out with Underworld Magazine here, and is featured in the October 19th issue of Newsweek - where they used an image of his piece "Displaced Persons" to accompany an article about the new trend towards localism in America.

Doyle will have more work for us soon as he is preparing for a solo show with LeBasse Projects early next year.
