Thomson was born in Bangalore, India, where his father was a British civil servant. Deaf from birth he was educated at the Royal School for Deaf Children at Margate. Although he spent some time at the London Art School in Kensington he was a largely self-taught artist and initially worked as a commercial artist and poster designer. In the 1920s he created a series of murals with a Pickwickian theme for the Duncannon Hotel in London. He was an Official War Artist to the Royal Air Force in World War II and in 1942 took over the post from which Eric Kennington had recently resigned. In 1945 he was elected to the Royal Academy and became a respected society portrait painter and muralist.
