Tim Biskup "Space Madness" @ Kong Art Space

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 20, 2015
On August 27th, 205 Kong Art Space will present "Space Madness", an exhibition of new paintings by former Juxtapoz cover artist Tim Biskup. With his newest series of paintings Biskup has come back to his roots. The work is bold, colorful, cartoony and emotive. He’s always felt a sort of spiritual connection to the work of Roberto Matta which is clearly a touchpoint in this collection. The stylistic similarities are there, but also a deep belief in the relevance of Jungian symbolism and incorporation of the surrealist philosophy of automatic composition.
