Tim, please tell us something about your artistic background
I have been painting for 16 years and my style is of recent leaning firmly towards to the hard edge style. I love brutalist architecture and structure. I am also a professional musician and have been concentrating firmly on painting over the last two years rather than music. I have been an artist for all of my life. Whether it be music or design or cultural, it’s where my head is always at.
What do you do and why?
I paint hard edge abstract contemporary art work because it is what I find most satisfying. I love photography as much as I like abstract expressionism but the artistic freedom and impact I experience with this style sits firmly between the two.
How would you define your style?
I like impact and I like colour. I like mood and I like design. This is what I do with my art work.
What are your goals from an artistic point of view?
My goal is to always have freedom. Freedom to change and freedom to express. To be ready mentally when the time comes to grow. I want to start doing much bigger pieces. Simple but strong with narrative.
What does being an artist mean to you?
To be able to communicate and live with freedom to explore and express.
Anything else you’d like to tell the readers?
Thanks for doing this web page. A great idea.
Tim Muddiman ★ Artist resume
By continuously omitting the unnecessary, I create highly concentrated visual impressions. The essential thing that remains has I am a contemporary abstract artist and also a musician. My career as a full time creative started a long time ago. My passion and obsessions with painting, music, photography, film, writers and design have lead the way through my entire life. I have a deep connection with Abstract Expressionist painters and 1980’s street art particularly done in New York and London. 16 years ago I started painting on canvas with acrylics. The luxury and freedom I feel with paint is something I don’t feel with music as a musician and the path which I’m now on has no end.
I like structure and controlled expressionism. Deep colour and hard edges. A not so obvious perspective and strength as well as fragility. I have been a member of Gary Numan’s band since 2007. I’ve been fortunate to have seen all four corners of the world and explore different cities, cultures, expressions and fundamentals of human existence in an apparent developed world. To date I have exhibited twice in public in London UK. The digital age offers benefits for independence and solitude.
Thank you for your answers, Tim.
