As an artist, Thigpen believes in the "G.B.T.E." method--going beyond the expected. To this end, he is an advocate of making renderings come alive in order to stimulate the viewer's mind. This is done through the careful synthesis of the abstract and the traditional and use of color to emphasize sometimes controversial subject matter.
Finally, Jerry Thigpen's dedication to children is demonstrated by his participation and the participation of his talented students in art competitions, gallery showings, artistic seminars and corporate forums to assist in the student's career planning and development.
