Tim Greshman otherwise known as Mr Penfold works in a variety of fields and mediums, including painting, graphic design, screen printing, installations, and large-scale murals. His distinctive style is recognizable by a formulated set of conditions that he applies to his work. Skateboard graphics has had a huge influence on him, as well as classical and formal abstraction. This fusion of styles and mediums opens a magnitude of possibilities, so the artist has been commissioned by record, beverage, and software companies.

Elements of His Art

The strong linear elements in his paintings give them a signature sign, as they tell two sides of the story. Gracefully drawn outlines let the images melt together, and still, they manage to lift off the figures from the ground. For prints, the artist uses screen prints, woodcuts, and etching. With his skills ranging from painting to graphic design, Mr Penfold has worked with various clothing brands and has done some marketing jobs for companies like Smirnoff&amp and Microsoft.

Leaving School Behind

His skillfulness isn’t due to his formal education since he left school at the age of sixteen. After this, he started working in a collaborative printmaking studio. The artist’s style and name have been formed by a number of influences, helping him form a one of a kind palette, and formulate a set of conditions that he applies to his own works.
