Dynamic Paradise Valley resident and artist Fred Tieken will be exhibiting at the Icehouse Gallery for the month of April.
Tieken has just returned from his well received exhibition at the LA Art Show and will mark his first Phoenix, AZ exhibition in over a year this Friday at the Icehouse Gallery. Tieken will exhibit alongside a talented line up of Phoenix artists including Jayme Blue, Larry Ortega and Joe Holdren in what promises to be a fantastic show and intriguing combination of artwork including painting, sculpture and mixed-media.
Tieken who is known for his vibrant expressionistic and painterly style, creates incredible work that explores personal subjects and experiences through irony and wry social commentary. Tieken seamlessly blends smart symbolism and irony with his love of color, bold lines, and mixed media. Tieken’s art allows the viewer a brief glimpse into his colorful and dazzling world where one senses a pure excitement and passion for life, art, and music. “Painting is like baring my soul to the world,” states Tieken whose level of emotional commitment is beautifully and vividly demonstrated in his work. Tieken’s work has been featured in more than 60 juried exhibitions and one-person shows from coast-to-coast.
