Tim Biskup is a Southern California artist whose practice is focused mainly on abstract and figurative painting, but also extends into sculpture, printmaking and music. He went to art school before entering the animation and illustration industries, where he honed his technical skills. In 1999 he gathered a community of artists and began hosting live art auctions at bars around Los Angeles. He quickly found an audience for his personal work and began a career showing his art in gallery settings. His complex color and design theories pushed forward a decidedly populist aesthetic which has continued to develop and morph over the years. From early 2017 until early 2020 he hosted open studio events at a small gallery space called Face Guts in Glassell Park, CA. In October of 2019 Tim’s retrospective monagraph/autobiography Tree of Life was published by Chronicle Chroma.
