Warner Brothers Records in Burbank has recently opened a group show inviting artists to reinterpret their favorite albums and covers from the label’s expansive catalog. […]

We had recently posted some pics of the glass vitrine space and front lobby, but went back to catch the end of the feature and to get a firsthand look with Tim.

Last Friday, Tim Biskup exhibited a new body of work in a show titled Former State. As previously seen during a studio visit with the LA-based artist, his latest effort continues to expand on the polygon-based style that he has been exploring the last several years. However, what was interesting this time around is that he used small models as a guide to his larger artworks. Each of his new paintings featured a small sculpture next to it which the artist created as a way […]
