Ep.39 Tim Gatenby – Mizog Art Podcast
In this episode Gary Mansfield talks to portrait artist Tim Gatenby (@therealtimgatenby), film maker turned portrait painter. During his BA in film-making, Tim started to be highly influenced by the graffiti that seemed to pop up overnight, feeling disheartened thinking of the sole painter when comparing it to the team of people and time required to produce a film.
Being drawn towards oil portraiture, in the classical style, he soon travelled to Florence to study on the Atelier programme, where he stayed for two years.
His latest series is Heroes, which is a humorous look back at the cultural icons of his youth, taking them from their nostalgic past and placing them in his dystopian future
