TIM FOWLER: IN GOOD COMPANY
12 May–19 May 2017 Preview Evening: 11 May 2017
Darren Baker Gallery invites you to spend some time “in good company” at emerging artist Tim Fowler’s solo exhibition this May.
The Leicester-based artist is recognised for his strong use of colour and distinctive contemporary interpretations of famous faces and architectural landmarks, previously described as an “urban expressionist”.
Fowler graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2007 with a degree in Contemporary Fine Art, and began practicing painting inspired by the styles of Marcus Jansen, George Baselitz, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Fowler’s style comprises bold brushstrokes and a vivid, energetic palette of neon greens, oranges, pinks, purples and blues. His works often use a combination of media including acrylic paint, enamel, gloss, spray paint, ink, oil sticks and marker pens.
Having caught the attention of many national and international collectors with his early cityscapes, featuring iconic buildings such as Battersea Power Station and the Old Vic, Fowler is now gaining more traction with his striking series of portraits.
Taking inspiration from a mixture of characters from the silver screen, legendary fashion icons and stars of popular culture, Fowler imbues them with a new lease of life using his signature expressive style and contemporary palette.
Opening on Thursday 11 May at Darren Baker Gallery, ‘In Good Company’ is set to be the first solo show dedicated to Fowler’s latest series of portraits. This exhibition offers the chance to purchase original artwork at affordable prices, and invest in this rising artist’s bright future.
Darren Baker Gallery is a contemporary art space located in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia. Opened in summer 2014, the gallery serves as a creative platform for exciting emerging artists working across a wide range of media. The gallery’s founding Director and renowned hyperrealist artist, Darren Baker, established the platform with the aim to break down the barrier between artist and collector by providing a service that is both accessible and transparent.
The gallery maintains a busy exhibition calendar of group and solo shows, including special events developed in collaboration with charitable organisations such as The Prince’s Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Cancer Research UK.
