In 2006 he moved into the fashion industry as creator of trends for clothing brands, whilst at the same time directing the fashion pages for Snatch Magazine until 2011.
It was at this time that he began asserting a more personal style, expressed initially through his first paintings which evoked a conceptual rendering of childhood memories, mainly represented by kinetic and ludic representations of emblematic animals.
He thus developed a very personal architectural style, composing his works on the basis of complex and dynamic geometric forms, patterns and lines which embed movement within the depths of his
His creations provoke a theatrical mood taking in a palette of retro-style colours which he applies with spray, paint and Poscas.
His compositions are characterized by the mixture and variety of techniques, developing the work by the use of specific materials and medium such as tape, stencils and paint jars in his most recent work.
Tim Marsh is continuously trying out new supports, constantly experimenting his creative process and echoing his past experience in extreme sports by painting on surf and skate boards or objects of functional conception.
