On September 28th, the Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles will be hosting a new solo show from Tim Biskup (featured) entitled Charge. The new body of work will revolve around Biskup’s thoughts on the title of the show, which holds complex personal references for him. Not only does the more common meaning to feel psychologically or emotively “charged” describe his feelings behind the exhibition, but “charge” also is used in particle physics and can be applied to color theory. For those in the area, the opening starts at […]

The show featured all kinds of different types of artworks – from limited edition porcelain figures, to big graphite drawings on the walls, to drawings and paintings of different sizes, using all kinds of different techniques and styles.

Some of you may not know (including us), but painter Tim Biskup (featured) is part of a band Big Butter that he formed with his brother Mike Biskup back in the 80s.

They aim to rectify this and have gone to Kickstarter to fund this endeavor. Watch the informative video below and if interested, head over to support their project as there is some awesome […]
