60 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine ARTS, MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT For nearly three decades, Thomas Elias Lockhart III has excelled as a self-taught, international selling, mixed media artist. Specializing in collages and oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, he has honed his craft as the owner and a fine artist at New Life Design since 1995. From an early age, Mr. Lockhart naturally gravitated towards a career as an artist. To this end, his cousin, and her own creative artwork, served as a constant source of inspiration for him. Mr. Lockhart subsequently drew upon such idols as Salvador Dali and Thomas Kinkade to inspire further creativity and success. Over the course of his career, Mr. Lockhart has presented and exhibited his work in many museums, libraries, galleries and private collections, including the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History and the Cottonwood Center for the Arts. Furthermore, some of his pieces have been included in the private collections of Denver Broncos players Rick Parros and Von Miller. In addition, he has participated in numerous art shows, including A Taste of Colorado, the Beaver Creek Fine Art Show and the Black Arts Festival. Mr. Lockhart’s work in the field is bolstered by his formal education, having earned an associate degree in art and visual communication from the Al Collins Graphic Design School in Tempe, Arizona. In light of his fulfilling career, Mr. Lockhart is especially proud to have been commissioned to paint a piece for Tyler Perry’s 50th birthday, and he is honored to have worked with the acclaimed writer, director, producer and actor. Furthermore, he is grateful to have been featured on two magazine covers in 2021 and in PBS Rocky Mountain in Colorado in 2020. In accounting for his many accomplishments, he attributes much of his success to his natural talents as an artist and communication skills. Mr. Lockhart aims to continue expanding his network, and he hopes to see his work displayed in larger venues and platforms in the near future.
