Chess Moves, Thompson’s first solo exhibition, will feature his most recent mixed media paintings inspired by human behavior, his life in the city of Detroit and lessons learned from history. Chess Moves delicately explores the decisions we choose in the search for happiness and success.

Zach Thompson is a self taught Detroit based painter. His work focuses on themes of individualism, humanity, and morale. A mixture of acrylic paints, oil pastels, and palette knives are used in the creation of each painting as well as traditional brushes.
