Tim Biskup has successfully created a unique and widely recognizable style out of the marriage of comic book illustration, graphic design, and abstractionism. His graphical, multilayered works are precise and colorful while expressing movement and intensity. Tim Biskup's dense style is inspired by mid-century modern design infused with a healthy dose of punk rock energy. He classifies his style as “Baroque Modernism” due to its infusion of modernism and ornate, detailed patterns. A main influence of Tim’s is Mary Blair, a designer who worked for Disney for 37 years and is best known for her work on the Disney animated films Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.
Since entering the Lowbrow scene in the late 90's, Tim’s artwork has evolved at a break-neck pace. He has extended his aesthetic influence into print, media, clothing and many other arenas while creating works for galleries and maintaining focus as a painter. He's collaborated with artists Mark Ryden and Gary Baseman and organized art auctions and exhibitions. His highly sought after original paintings and sculptures have been shown worldwide, including galleries in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Kyoto and Melbourne.
