Thomas Kinkade Net Worth $70 Million Dollars

Produced in 1958 in Sacramento, California, Thomas Kinkade registered in the University of California at Berkeley as well as the Art Center College of Design. Kinkade traveled America in 1980 and got a contract to produce a sketching handbook: “The Artist’s Guide to Sketching”. The novel’s success earned Kinkade an artist’s occupation to the creation of the animated film “Fire and Ice” in 1983. Following the film, Kinkade started working full time as a painter, becoming best known for his pale colours and magnificent settings. Kinkade also became renowned for his commercialization of his work, something that has been frequently criticized by the art business. Kinkade appeared to adopt the argument, noting in a interview he is “the most controversial artist in the world”. Kinkade’s paintings are on the list of most often counterfeited on the planet. Even after his passing, his paintings remain sold. Throughout the peak of his career, he was allegedly bringing in more than 50 million dollars each week. Kinkade was the artist of choice for numerous anniversary parties, including Disney’s 50th Anniversary as well as the 85th goodbye season of Yankee Stadium. Kinkade was the patron of numerous organizations, for example, Make-a-Wish Foundation (he became the group’s official representative in 2003) as well as the Salvation Army. Kinkade expired on April 6, 2012, in Monte Sereno, California. Kinkade is entombed at Madronia Cemetery in California. Kinkade and his wife, Nanette Wiley, wed in 1982 and had four kids collectively. They split a year before his passing.

#Quote
1I view art as an inspirational tool. People who put my paintings on their walls are putting their values on their walls; faith, family, home, a simpler way of living, the beauty of nature, quiet tranquility, peace, joy hope. They beckon you into this world that provides an alternative to your nightly news broadcast.
2On opening Thomas Kinkade Community in Vallejo, California: When Walt looked out over his citrus grove and envisioned Disneyland, it wasn't real to him yet. When he walked down Main Street, it became real. So is this moment for me.
3(Of Andy Warhol) "He is my hero, and I'm his heir apparent".
