Tim Biskup (Luca De Michele)

Tim Biskup born in 1967 in Santa Monca, California. He is a fine artistwhosework has been shown worldwide, including galleries and museums in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Kyoto, Barcelona, Berlin and Melbourne. He's collaborated with artists and designers around the globe and organized art auctions and exhibitions.
He works with playful and vibrant psychedelic imagery in the pop-design genre that emerged in the late 20th century through such diverse media as silkscreening, textile production, and rotocast vinyl.

In recent years his work has taken on a more serious tone, driving his self-proclaimed "baroque modernism"into darker territory. Tim grew up on a blend of Disneyland, ‘Big Daddy’ Roth, classic cartoons & Godzilla movies. He spent his teen years in the anarchy of punk rock & the weirdness of the Residents.
He'smatured with thebeauty of 50's and 60's modern designers like James Flora & Mary Blair. These influences, as well as his years of experience in animation, have pushed him towards his manic, spontaneous style.
