One of the absolute, very first wallpapers ever done for The Desktop Wallpaper Project was by my friend and artistic hero, Tim Biskup. At the time I didn’t know him but I’d been obsessed with his artwork since his early collaborations with San Francisco based lifestyle brand Gama-Go. When I moved to Los Angeles in 2005 I used to visit his BisPop Gallery in Pasadena as well, which was filled with all kinds of amazing works. So getting him to do another wallpaper for the site is a true treat for me, and hopefully for you as well.
Starting Saturday, September 28 he has a show at the Martha Otero Gallery simply called Charge, a collection of new paintings. From what he’s told me the scale of these paintings are gigantic, larger than he’s ever done. And we’ve got one as a wallpaper. This piece is called A Subtle Advertisement For Mind-Numbing Pain, a massive piece measuring out at 12 x 8 feet. I love that it combines everything I love about Tim’s work in one giant piece. It also makes for a great iPhone wallpaper!
Be sure to check back every Wednesday for a new wallpaper.
