Tim Biskup

Born 1967, Santa Monica, CA, USA.

Tim Biskup is a Southern California fine artist whose work has been shown worldwide, including galleries and museums in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Kyoto, Barcelona, Berlin and Melbourne.

He works with playful and vibrant psychedelic imagery in the pop-design genre that emerged in the late 20th century through such diverse media as silkscreening, textile production, and rotocast vinyl. Tim produces a feeling of punk rock, in most of his posters, in my opinion.

His art works/posters feature complex colour mixes and design theories. His designs are also very aesthetic. I have also noticed he uses a lot of geometric shapes in his designs.  He tends to use many different sized shapes to make up a picture as a whole.

Here are some examples of his posters that use the aforementioned techniques…

  
 

Tim’s career in animation led him through nearly every studio in Southern California where he honed his craft as a draftsman and technical painter. Emerging from the studio system around the beginning of the millennium,he attacked the fine art world with a constant stream of original artwork, limited edition prints, vinyl figures, sculptures and tee shirts. In recent years his work has
taken on a more serious tone, driving his self-proclaimed “baroque modernism” into darker territory.

Tim was asked in an interview by http://www.mrporter.com for the journal portfolio “I ART LA” on June 7th, 2011  how he would describe his work?

His answer was as follows…

“It has changed quite a bit over the years. It’s been called “Baroque Modernism”, but that doesn’t really fit anymore.
I like to make pretty pictures with deeper conceptual content. I’m inspired by cartoons, American history, chaos and music.”

And there you have it. Tim Biskup’s style speaks for itself. It is very eye catching and extremely addictive. I look forward to attempting some of his geometric style techniques in the future with my own artworks.
