Standard Hotel, Hollywood

A few days ago a popped over to the standard to paint the glass box that they keep the bikini girls in. I turned it into a giant mouth and asked that the girls all wear red ribbons around their necks while they're in there (There's a video in the works where I talk about the ribbons and other ideas behind the installation). Here are a few pics. More to come. Check it out in person if you get a chance.

An interesting note about this installation project: It all came about on new years day when I struck a deal with the hotel to do the project in exchange for not having to deal with the absolute mayhem I created in one of their rooms on NYE. Thanks standard (and lots of Jameson & Champagne).

LA, I'm Yours!

My pals at POKETO & KITSUNE NOIR are curating a show at Space 1520. The idea is for artists to create art from vintage objects. As soon as I got the invite to be in this show I knew it was finally time to paint on these two lamps that have been sitting around my studio for years. Show opens tomorrow. Should be fun!

Polygon Print Series #1

These have been in the works for a while. Finally going to print and on sale Friday from Here's the press release:

Tim Biskup’s
Polygon Print Series #1
Available this Friday, April 9th, beginning at noon PST

About the series:

Over the last few years Tim Biskup’s work has evolved rapidly. One of the key elements in his recent paintings is the presence of “faceted” images. Biskup has explained that the style grew out of visual distortions that he experienced when he had migraine headaches. Amazingly, as the style developed the migraines subsided! This addition to the artist’s visual lexicon was captured in his epic 72-color serigraph print “Asylum #4” from 2008, but the costly production process took the price of the print out of range for most casual collectors. With this new series of digital offset prints the price comes down to earth. The six images were culled from an assortment of paintings dating back to early 2008. The artist painstakingly recreated each image as a vector graphic so the technical quality is precise.

Five of the six prints from the series are available individually.
Each is a signed and numbered limited edition of 66.
The sixth print is limited to only 33 and is included free as part of the complete set.
