About Timon Maxey
Born in London in 1966 Timon drew and painted from an early age, greatly encouraged by his mother who taught art. After leaving school he gained a degree in geography at Victoria University. The decision to purse a career in graphic art and design saw him complete an Auckland based design course. The strong compositional skills and structured harmony so evident in Timon's contemporary landscapes owes much to this sound, foundational training.
Nationwide exhibitions resulted in increased public acknowledgement. In 1998 he was a finalist in the Wellington Telecom Art Awards and in 2001 a finalist in the Wairarapa Telecom Art Awards. His work featured in Denis Robinson's 2008 publication, New Zealand's Favourite Artists. His paintings have been exhibited at Art Attack Gallery in Dubai and featured in a travelling group show in London. Over the last decade Timon has completed many large commissions for both international and local clients. His works were a well-received feature of International Art Centre's Our New Zealand Exhibition and Animals in Art, 2020 Timon Maxey creates contemporary, cubist landscapes of New Zealand from a fresh perspective.
