About me

Introduction Seattle native Tim Manthey has been creating strange visual art since childhood. After years of drawing, writing and producing lo-fi, surreal videos for public access television, he picked up a pair of scissors and a stack of old magazines, being struck with the urge to create handmade collages. Within months, the collages grew into a series of whimsically disturbing dream narratives. He began to employ forgotten vintage styles and motifs, putting a strong emphasis on thoughtful composition. Tim crafts humorous, unsettling visions that aim to challenge the imagination and draw the viewer into outlandish realms. He shows his collages at different venues and galleries around Seattle, and has been featured on the cover of Seattleā€™s The Stranger, To the Power of N, BOLO Magazine, The Panhandler, and will be included in the book Modern Vintage Illustration. Tim continues to create artwork continously, updating his blog weekly with new images, undertaking commissioned pieces, and hanging shows in Seattle. Tim would like to make a collage or illustration for YOU. Contact: cloudnectarstudio(at)gmail(dot)com for requests and/or conversation:)
