For over 40 years, Minnesota artist Tim Nyberg has been an illustrator and graphic designer for everyone from Fortune 500 companies to the corner retailer, from McDonald’s to small cafes, for magazines, book covers, web sites, and his own humor books - most notably The best-selling Duct Tape Books. He has won numerous awards for both his illustration and personal art, and is in represented in collections around the world.
During his eight-year relocation from the Twin Cities to Door County, Wisconsin, Tim returned to his first love - creating his own non-commissioned fine art (Tim prefers to call it "Fun Art"). In his paintings, you can easily see his commercial art sensibilities. Like his illustrative work, there is a thread of humor to everything Tim paints. Even his non-objective pieces are playful and fresh. Tim's quick to admit that he enjoys exploring and blurring the line between the two disciplines - especially without direction from an art director or client. He explains, "My overriding objective in my work is to visually entertain the viewer – to bring a smile, a chuckle or a brief moment of altered perception."
