Tim Vyner travels the world recording sporting events as he sees them. In 2008 he witnessed 24 events in 19 days at the Beijing Olympic Games and in 2012 he was the Olympic artist for The Times newspaper, using an iPad on location to draw, record and publish emerging stories as they happened. His images present a unique view of the passion, atmosphere and participation in live sport. Vyner graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1988 and continues to work in education as a senior lecturer of Illustration in Bath. His lithograph for the 2002 football World Cup, England My England, was printed at Curwen Studio.
Tim has recently spent time visiting the monasteries of Mount Athos, Greece, and in September 2017 he will be showing the resulting body of work at Curwen Gallery. This will be the first time the work has been seen in the UK.
Below is a video about Tim by filmmaker Orlando Gili. This original short film is part of documentary series, 'Painter Profiles', which examines English artists and their practices.
