My name is Raph Thomas. I am an artist based in South London. I primarily paint colourful animals.

I started doing this a few years ago and they have been quite popular.


Every time I display my work at art shows people suggest new animals to paint, so the list is endlessly growing.

If you are looking for a particular animal feel free to get In touch and ask.

I always photograph my work and over the years I have accumulated over 100 rainbow animal images.

I am fortunate to say my work is in the collections and homes of people all around the world including China, Burma, New Zealand, South Africa, and across North America and Europe. Although most of my originals are now sold, almost all are available as prints.


My intention is that any image of mine can be mixed and matched to work alongside any other and my prints are available in many sizes to fit any room.

I do undertake commissions, if you are interested please fill in a contact form.

I have exhibited at a lot of Art Fairs over the past 10 years but now I am a part of the Arthouse Galleries group.

As a member of this group I am involved in setting up temporary art galleries in shopping centres around London and the surrounding area. For more information on Arthouse Galleries visit their website:
