Timm Blandin is a French artist living and working in Haute-Savoie, in the East of France. His paintings of landscapes or scenes from everyday life are colourful, immersive and contemplative, suspended in time between dreams and reality. By revealing the hidden charm of the mundane, he reminds us that beauty can be found in the simplest things. Through his art, he invites us to awaken our senses and appreciate the wonders of our everyday lives.
The growing digital environment led him to develop an interest towards computer-aided creations, and it has been a key tool for him to compose, mix and harmonise his works. His return to painting was motivated by the need to materialise a creation, returning to a time of action rather than calculation inherent in the digital universe.
With a passion for photography and drawing, Blandin naturally gravitated towards figurative expression, which opened up infinite possibilities for him to play with light and shadows and experiment with a vibrant and dreamlike colour palette. By mixing flat tints, transparency and superimpositions when structuring his compositions, the shapes in his works are simplified and geometric in a way that accentuates the painting’s chromatic intensity. The graphic treatment of his work refers to the digital visual effects that tend to pixelate and smooth out details.
