Tim Sharman is an artist whose work sits on the fence between outsider and insider art. His use of craft techniques mixed with traditional fine art practices and a heavy dose of some conceptual thinking create a hybrid of sophisticated naivety. He has been making art for over 25 years and has been in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States.
Along with his solo work, Sharman and sculptor Walter Robinson formed Tag Team, a multi-media collaboration. Tag Team has had solo exhibitions at the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco and Pierogi in Brooklyn as well as been in group shows nationwide.
Sharman attended CCA (then California College of Arts and Crafts, or CCAC) and graduated with both a BFA and MFA from this fine institution.
Sharman was born in San Francisco and grew up in rural Martinez, California, where he continues to live and work, along with his artist wife, Susan (also a graduate of CCA), and Pepper the cat.
Sharman's latest project is the creation of the Doof Museum of Culture and History. This multi-media, multi-discipline project can be viewed at the website listed below.
