Tree of Life
This first career-spanning look at Southern California artist Tim Biskup's prolific aesthetic range begins with his early roots in animation and traces the evolution of his distinct style, which incorporates a complex interplay of color, geometry, and layering, resulting in a gorgeous plethora of abstract, graphic paintings and drawings.
Tim Biskup has been referred to as a Baroque Modern master, and his work has been celebrated for its dense, character-driven style inspired by mid-century design infused with a healthy dose of punk rock energy. In addition to the more than 450 pieces of artwork featured here, there is also a 12-page autobiographical account detailing Tim Biskup's artistic journey, including his significant struggles and considerable triumphs along the way.
“The lavishly and lusciously produced new monograph on the work of celebrated Southern California painter and cultural provocateur Tim Biskup presents some 450 works of art made in the past 20 years…. The stellar reproductions are a delight to peruse, but the most moving element comes in the form of a 12-page essay by Biskup that closes the book.”
