Tim Fowler graduated in Contemporary Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam University in 2007. He began his career painting architectural structures and motifs, before turning to the portraiture. A feeling for the architectural still persists in his artwork: a sense of deconstruction resides in the angular shapes that pervade the portraits, transforming each living figure into a work of contemplative art.
Throughout the years, Tim's works have been exhibited all across London, in solo and group exhibitions in prestigious art galleries, in public and private commissions, as well as at high profile art fairs.
"My paintings are partially recognisable images distorted with strong colour and abstract elements. I try to capture something deeper, as apposed to literal representation. I use combinations of acrylic, enamel, gloss, spray paint, ink, graffiti paints, oil sticks and marker pens. My approach to painting is very energetic and brave. My techniques include using masking tape, stencilling, broken lines, flat colour, palette knife painting, mark making and the hardest technique – making mistakes. I find making mistakes helps me to discover a new sense of direction with a painting, especially if I feel like I’ve hit a dead end with a particular piece".
