Welcome To The Tim Shorten Gallery

About The Artist:-

Tim Shorten was born in Bolton, Lancs. He studied at Bolton College of Art & Design, Preston Polytechnic (now the University of Central Lancashire) where he gained a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art, and Leeds Polytechnic. He is Head of Art and Design at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys in Cheshire.

Exhibitions in recent years include the Singer and Freidlander / Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, the Royal Cambrian Academy Summer Exhibition (several times). 

Tim has often been considered a 'realist painter' however he states that the images are 'ironically, more about a sort of artificiality than reality' Tim's aim is for his work to be timeless, firstly because the universal emotion of the scenes he depicts is recognised by adults of all ages and time periods and secondly because his work will not 'date' like those that reference the present day. 

Tim is currently working on a much anticipated collection due for release later in 2014. He is influenced by Edward Hopper, Stanley Spencer and David Hockney. Tim's works are held in many private collections here in the UK and abroad.
