Today Design Gallerist presents to you the artist Ted Pim. He his the first canvases of street artist that paint walls of abandoned buildings. The Belfast, Northern Ireland-born artist roamed the U.S. and Europe and sought out dark, neglected structures where he then spent days creating massive other-worldly murals.
But Pim’s murals were not typical street art – no spray-painted graffiti with bold graphics and angry political messages. Pim was channeling old masters like Caravaggio and Rembrandt. His art was in massive scale and up-dated in imagery, but it oozed Baroque-inspired dark drama and disturbing realism.
The tone of Pim’s arresting art are mysterious dark and secretive. Yet the more you stare at these paintings – and it is very difficult to take your eyes off them – the more depth and different interpretations they evoke.
