Tim Fowler's semi-abstract paintings are inspired by the migratory plants that accompany his own heritage. From West Africa and then via the Caribbean to the UK, Tim’s plant paintings fill his often oversized canvases, overwhelming the viewer with striking compositions. We love how Tim has developed a striking signature colour palette over years of refinement. Tim’s main concern within his work is exploring the colour field. Although vivid, Tim’s works are balanced and calming, using a palette of extremely bright and intense hues makes his work distinctly recognisable.Read more
Over the many years of Tim’s career, this organic relationship with paint and colour has developed and shines through as he experiments with opacity, texture combinations, finishes and light. Tim uses a variety of mediums within his work combining oil, acrylic, spray, enamel and graffiti inks. Tim subverts traditional and contemporary methods of applying these mediums and uses aperture caps and marker paint mops to create marks, strokes, drips, scrapes and smears across the canvas.
After graduating in 2007 with a degree in Contemporary Fine Art, Tim experimented with painting architectural structures before turning to the striking portraiture work he is celebrated for today. Tim has been exhibiting his work for over a decade and has participated in shows worldwide including countries such as the United States, Germany and Ibiza, not to mention a variety of solo shows in his home country.
We’ve been working with Tim Fowler since 2018.
