Check out Despina and Thomas Tunberg’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Despina and Thomas Tunberg.

Despina, Thomas, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
We have a long history in Art! I am a painter but I a do not paint much lately as I am too busy working to promote other artists. I used to be a gallery owner with galleries in Greece and in Santa Barbara and I used to organize an annual art festival in Greece, on the island of Crete. I am Greek and my husband Thomas is originally from Los Angeles – son of Karl Tunberg the famous screenwriter of ‘Ben Hur’ – but he lived in Greece for over 30 years. We came back to the States together in 1994.

The last 20 years we have been publishing art books and we are located in Santa Barbara CA. We publish juried Coffee-table, Museum quality art books, presenting artists from all over the world. Our books are documents of what is happening in the art world in our era. We also organize art festivals and we participate in major art fairs with selected artists.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I used to be an artist.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
The work of our artists can be seen in our books either by ordering them or viewing the digital version online and by clicking on the image of each book cover.
