One of my back-burner, life-long goals is to be an art collector. So, when I realized that the work of Tim Groen, an Amsterdam and NY-based mixed media artist, was available to private collectors, and at very reasonable prices, I started to mentally rearrange things on my walls.
Groen's mixed-media collages, which frequently incorporate vintage wallpaper, blur the lines between graphic design, illustration, and art. His work keeps a very minimalist theme with influences from the late '50s and from his very own collection of mid-century home accents.
To learn more about Tim Groen and his artwork,
Groen has been commissioned to create installations and advertising campaigns for Barneys New York, and has worked for MTV Networks, Maybelline, Cotton, Inc., Levi’s Europe and a variety of magazines including Dwell, House & Garden, Tatler and The New York Times' magazine, B.
Groen's work is available through prime design retailers, such as Velocity Art and Design, rather than through art galleries, because, he says, “I just want to be a part of what people do to make their place look cool.”
