I've noticed his name on some stuff on the Cartoon Network before. Samuri Jack and, I think, Time Squad. I like his style.

Tim also used to run the Burning Brush art auctions in LA, which featured many talented artists local and national, including many with ties to the animation world and Spumco and stuff like that. Visit theBurning Brush site, and you can see items from the previous auctions featuring these talented folks, including TC member kooche. Sadly Burning Brush is no more, but many of the artists have their own websites.

Tim Biskup is also married to Seonna Hong, another skilled artist who's doing more and more of her own shows. And he's a big time otaku for Japanese kaiju vinyl monster toys.

Really? I like works from both of them. If I were home I'd try to post the image of Seonna's "I like big booty" from the Pirate show at Sixspace. Very funny.

Thanks TikiChris! I think the full title is " I Like Big Booty and I Cannot Lie"

We've been collecting Tim's prints for a few years now and are still trying to afford an original. I think that most anyone who likes Shag's style would also be into what Tim does. There are definitely some parallels between the two artist's styles. Tim has done quite a few Tiki themed paintings but that's only a small part of his portfolio. My favorite works of his are the abstract mid-century influenced ones. He also seems to have a fixation on Japanese monsters. Again, like Shag, Tim seems to have a good handle on how to market himself as is evident in the array of products he lends his art to. The buzz around the hipster/lowbrow galleries is that he may be the next big thing. I agree.

Tim did a solo show with us in April entitled "The Golden Pill". The show almost sold out before we opened it and was completely sold out before it ended. You can view this show by visiting the Shows section of our web site at www.Mmoderngallery.com and clicking on previous shows. You can then click on The Golden Pill and view these amazing works. Tim is featured on the cover and all throughtout the newest Juxtapoz magazine as well. We have some of his previously Sold Out prints on our web site too! Go to the prints section and click on Tim Biskup. Shag prints are there too!

Check out the latest Juxtapoz magazine. It has a Tim's interview.
I love his art, and he's a big tiki fan too (saw at tiki Oasis).
There's also a review on tiki Oasis IV on this Juxtapoz.

Also here is her bio from the Sixpence Gallery

Tiki Chris,

Check out some affordable stuff here:

http://www.mpawson.demon.co.uk/biskup.html

The guy who sells it distributes Tiki News, and has sold all sorts of Tiki stuff back when nobody was interested, so he's a good chap.
