Tim Christie is a New Zealand-based designer and artist. His work in design and advertising has seen him develop some of New Zealand’s most iconic brands including identities for The Interislander, Radio New Zealand and New Zealand Wine. He has featured in New Zealand and Australian design awards and his work has been published internationally.

In 2017 Tim released a collection of digitally generated visual art. The initial body of work emerged from a series of explorations where he examined the intersection between two distinctly different domains. The fusion between angular geometric abstraction and softer, anatomical forms, like faces, spawned an original and intriguing new aesthetic. His innovative, fashion-forward style has been described as a modern synthesis of Op Art, Pop Art, Street Art, Geometric Expressionism and De Stijl.

Tim’s work captures a wide audience and he has experienced rapid success in New Zealand and abroad, where he won an award with the UK’s largest fine art group.

Over the last two years, he has deepened his interest in his art and extended the collection to include lightboxes, large original acrylic paintings and weavings. In particular, he has enjoyed playing with the space or ‚Äėvoid‚Äô between abstract and representational art.

Tim has shown in a number of international destinations including Sydney, Hong Kong, London, Manchester, Chester, Edinburgh, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. He is represented by various galleries overseas and his pieces now adorn the walls of collectors from Australasia, North America, Asia and Europe.
