Tim Southall

Tim was born in Staffordshire and grew up on the edge of the heavy industrial heartlands of the Black Country. He studied Fine Art at Northumbria University and then printmaking at the Royal College of Art, London and École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Based in London for twenty years, he taught at University level while maintaining a career as a professional artist before leaving the teaching profession to concentrate solely on making art. For the last 20 years he has been based in Cadiz Province in southern Spain, where he makes most of his work.

Tim is an elected member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. His work is held in various collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum - London, Ashmolean Museum - Oxford, National Print Archive - Scarborough, BP International - Brussels and Northern Arts - Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

‘My work is figurative and generally uses a narrative framework to explore themes of our shared history, often with a strong character and emotional resonance. I enjoy playing with metaphor, scale and perspective, and creating images that at first seem intrinsically simple, but on closer inspection are complex. My creative process reflects everyday life experiences which are often re-interpreted in an otherworldly context.'
