For Virtue, Tim Biskup returns to paper, rediscovering the medium after years of painting on wood. The exhibition will include more than 50 works, including the latest additions to the Jackson 500 series — his series of 500 business card-sized paintings. In conjunction with Virtue, Tim will also be releasing his latest print, Black Helium, a limited edition, 17-color, Serigraph print on wood.

Tim Biskup has successfully created a unique and widely recognizable style out of the marriage of comic book illustration, graphic design, and abstractionism. His graphical, multilayered works are precise and colorful while expressing movement and intensity. Tim Biskup’s dense style is inspired by mid-century modern design infused with a healthy dose of punk rock energy. He classifies his style as “Baroque Modernism” due to its infusion of modernism and ornate, detailed patterns. A main influence of Tim’s is Mary Blair, a designer who worked for Disney for 37 years and is best known for her work on the Disney animated films “Alice in Wonderland” and “Peter Pan.”
