As a rising star in the art world, Tim Rogerson casts his artwork with a very evident energy and passion. Inspired by the works of Edgar Degas and Malcolm Liepke, the North Carolina native has embarked on an artistic journey that has taken him from Degas to Disney to darling of the industry.
Born in Kissimmee, FL, Mr. Rogerson was forced to move with his family to North Carolina at the age of four because of family health concerns. His father, who at the time, was employed by Walt Disney World as Show Director in charge of managing and maintaining all of the performances in the park, made every day a magical adventure for the future artist, even though they no longer had the safety umbrella of Disney.
Using the medium of oil paints, Mr. Rogerson focuses on capturing people in social settings, My work will always evolve, becoming more complex and detailed, says Mr. Rogerson.
Since graduating from Ringling in 2004, Mr. Rogerson has contributed his artistic abilities to Disney and SS Designs in Florida. Currently, Mr. Rogerson is taking the art world by storm with his whimsical imagery for Disney Fine Art and this summer's launch of Tim Rogerson's Cosmopolitan POP: A Series of Paintings About Everyday Life and the Games People Play; a series of collections of works that showcase the lighter side of life. "I want my paintings to celebrate life and stay fresh... I try to stay away from the basic routine and technique because my joy for painting comes from the challenge of creating something entirely new," says the artist about Cosmopolitan POP. In preview, this series has already won critical acclaim by the trade and his peers.
Mr. Rogerson's latest success has come in the form of an official title. Named an Official Artist of the 2006 U.S. Olympic Winter Team, Mr. Rogerson has taken the POP world by surprise again with his colorful and impacting style. Tim Rogerson has obtained this designation by working with An Official Licensee of the U.S. Olympic Committee, Fine Art Ltd.
As my personal style is emerging and I break down the composition into simple shapes, with each shape having its own palette it's a jigsaw puzzle of color to form an image, says Mr. Rogerson.
