Artist Statement

Tim, age 64 years, is an internationally renowned mural artist and sculptor. Born with a natural talent for art, at age 22 years Tim decided to pursue a career as an artist. He studied at the National Art School, Sydney and received an Artists Development Grant from the Australia Council. He now has 42 years of professional artistic development to bring to his work. Since the mid 1980s his murals, canvas paintings and sculpture have attracted an enormous amount of television and press coverage both nationally and globally. A few image examples of Tims work are included in this portfolio which clearly show the wide range of materials and techniques this artist has mastered. He includes sculpture effects in murals. He has painted his sculptures and even uses internal illumination as well as mechanical movement in sculpture. Much of Tims artwork has a theme of multicultural Australia and our Aboriginal heritage. I have known Tim for over 30 years. I was a young television journalist when I was first assigned to film his murals and interview the artist. Recently in October 2017 Tim wanted to unveil his break through work Enlightenment on the world stage. He exhibited two large Light Sculpture installations in the XI Florence Contemporary Art Biennale, in Florence Italy. Tims Installations were awarded the First Prize gold medal, which is called the Lorenzo Il Magnifico award. Rebecca Le Tourneau. Producer, Channel 7 Television Network, Sydney, Australia. ...
