MEET TIM FOWLER OF LEICESTER
At 16, Tim Fowler saw a Basquiat film on television and realised what it meant to be an artist. Trained in fine art at Sheffield Hallam University, Tim works in acrylics for their versatility and ability to match his style and pace of painting. His energetic, bold paintings focus on subjects ranging from architecture to icons of the silver screen. Tim juxtaposes his modern painting style with classic fashion in his subjects, urging the viewer to consider more than what meets the eye. Based in his native Leicester, Tim can find inspiration anywhere but studio. His favourite colour, pink, is both calming and bold, and can feature prominently in his works. A visit to his studio would reveal Tim stores most of his paints in empty Dolmio jars!
