Tim Doyle "Unreal Estate" solo show at Spoke Art Gallery

Tim Doyle
Unreal Estate

Opening night Thursday February 2nd, 2012 6pm - 10pm
Show on view through Thursday February 23, 2012

Spoke Art Gallery is proud to present the debut solo show by Austin-based serigraph artist Tim Doyle. In “Unreal Estate,” Doyle explores locations found throughout popular culture in a variety of limited-edition hand-printed screen prints and original art.

From Moe’s Tavern to the Bluth Banana Stand, Doyle’s realistic and illustrative reinterpretations of television’s most iconic places is a captivating voyage. For this new body of work, Doyle has moved away from his usually big bold colors and comic-book line quality to create a more illustrative style, with muted tones and colors that reflect a mood or time of day.  He attempts to preserve and honor the non-physical spaces found in this show with the same care and intention given to iconic real world locations.  This series is one artist’s intensely personal journey through a world which is universal to us all. Join the artist as pop culture tour guide this February 2nd.

As an added bonus, the artist will be in attendance for the opening and we are happy to announce that the first 100 guests will receive a complimentary limited edition screen print.

Remaining prints, original inks and wood/glow-in-the-dark variants will be released the following day, Friday, February 3rd via the Spoke Art online store at approximately 3pm PST.

Tim Doyle is an illustrator and print-maker working out of Austin, Texas. Growing up in the suburban sprawl of the Dallas area, he turned inward, only finding joy in comic-books, television and video games. He has run a small chain of comic-book stores, designed t-shirts and self-published. Doyle was also the creative director for The Alamo Drafthouse’s Mondo Posters until 2009, when he built his own studio, Nakatomi Print Labs.
