Tim Ashkar - African American Art Paintings

Tim Ashkar - African American Art Paintings

Thought I'd write a bit about Tim Ashkar, an artist whose paintings I like. He is not very old or dead like the other artists I write about. Tim Ashkar was born in 1956 and must be around 51 years old. He usually draws paintings of women especially african women, christian religious themes and gardens.

As a child Tim Ashkar always loved art and decided to pursue art as a career at the age of 18. He studied oil painting and drawing for five years under Judith Serbaroli, the daughter of a famous Italian artist. Ashkar's work is strongly influenced by religion and mythology.

Tim Ashkar has also created scenery for tv shows and films. Some of his paintings can be viewed in Washington DC and the Pickfair Mansion. I hope that one day I can afford to actually go to foreign museums and see them for real.
