BIO AND PERSONAL WORK:
Tim’s is a self taught artist who, after escaping from the science industry, was clearly affected by his chemical overexposure, becoming compelled to obsessively fill spaces with his decoratively warped visions.
Taking early inspiration from the likes of old school skateart, comics and death metal album covers, his personal artwork often centres around the reoccurring theme of ‘The Underground Merry-go-round’ – A self invented fluid and fantastical psychedelic world comprised of curious metamorphosing lifeforms, living together in a constant state of oppression and conflict.
His comically striking and peculiarly detailed otherworldly scenes invite the viewer to look further into the image to discover the numerous hidden visual stories and characters.
Oddly dark, strangely amusing.
Nonsense that makes perfect sense.
For both his commercial and personal work Tim’s creative aim is to try and live up to The Underground Merry-go-round definition:
- feasibly one of the most difficult words in the english language to define plainly and simply, particularly without using it in the definition
- a group or movement organized secretly to work against an existing regime.
- a media genre intended for an elite audience, that is often characterized by its high levels of originality and experimentation, and does not conform to typical standards, trends, or hypes as set by the popular mainstream media
- Just a continuous fun, fun ride!
With this in mind Tim offers his illustration services to like minded folk who want to go against the status quo and attract attention to their products.
