Tim Biskup (b. Santa Monica, CA. 1967- ) is a Southern California artist whose practice is focused mainly on abstract and figurative painting, but extends into sculpture, printmaking and music. He studied fine art at Otis/ Parsons 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 an aesthetic which has continued to develop and morph over the years. In February of 2017 he opened a small gallery space called Face Guts in Glassell Park, CA. Biskup’s mid-career retrospective monagraph/autobiography “Tree of Life” was published by Chronicle Chroma in 2019.
