About Tim Buckwalter

View Profile »

For the past 25 years, appropriation and mimesis artist Timothy Buckwalter has been remixing found imagery to produce works that explore the echoing of effigies through time—how images and ideals from the past are still present and active today. Originally from Pennsylvania, Timothy Buckwalter (born 1966) now lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated with honors from Philadelphia’s Tyler School of Art in 1988. As a teenager growing up near Philadelphia in the early '80s, he discovered hip hop and post-punk. Buckwalter spent his adolescence getting paid to dj parties and finish his friend's high school art assignments. While in art school he was in an incredibly unpopular noise band, and co-organized with Robert Curcio (of Pulse Art Fair fame) their college's first performance art events. After a brief stint answering phone queries and responding to complaints about art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, he sold his record collection and moved to California. In 2006, after a conversation with Dan Golden about alternatives to the gallery system, Timothy spent the bulk of the year making more than 700 drawings, selling them online through a hugely-popular curated weekly exhibition. His paintings are in numerous corporate collections as well as the holdings of the Oakland Museum of California. Over the last decade, Buckwalter has organized exhibitions online – including Eyebeam’s Add-Art project and SFMOMA's OpenSpace – as well as in the physical world. He is currently the gallery director of NIAD Art Center, a contemporary studio arts program that assists artists with disabilities.
