Tim Anderson the artist from Chicago

Tim Anderson's "Acre" at Thomas Masters Gallery, Chicago from ThomasMastersGallery on Vimeo.

Tim is represented at the Thomas Masters Gallery along with Magdalena Abokonwitz and several other really incredible artists. Recently he was appointed by the city of Chicago to paint several portraits of illustrious Chicagoans.
We met one day long ago in Florence and found out that he was staying down the road from us at Nittardi in Castellina in Chianti.

Once when he was raging around Tuscany he traded a live pig for a painting. I don't know what he did with it. I know that once he drew a battle scene on a banana when he was little.

His paintings can be gigantic or miniatures. He painted alot of chefs for Slowfood and twisters as he calls them, mobsters, saints, suffragets, musicians, hummingbirds, bizarre ancient boats with long paddles.

Here is a link to some see of his stuff. Bolus

He is probably the coolest person I know on the planet.
