Phone booth (Self portrait), 1986 by Tobin Sprout

Tobin Sprout, founding member of seminal indy rock band Guided By Voices and solo recording artist currently releasing new music, has been quietly creating unusual and inspired photorealistic and expressionistic paintings for over 30 years. Tobin Sprout Paintings is a live art gallery created and maintained by Flood Content of Asheville, North Carolina. We curate and write analysis about Tobin Sprout’s fine art on social media and on a small network of websites, like this one.

We welcome all fans to post and share their own paintings and experiences.

Flood fine art offers the curation and amenities of a gallery market, but the value pricing of buying direct from the artist. Tobin has been selling his own work direct to collectors for decades. Tobin Sprout can be reached directly by email at petrifiedfish@msn.com at his Leland, Michigan studio.

Tobin has handled many sales and guarantees the sale of his work. Flood provides documents of authenticity and provenance for each large scale painting sale.
