Tim Quirke
South Africa 20th Century

Tim Quirke studied Fine Art at the Johannesburg College of Art, completing his studies in 1983. After completion of his course Tim was invited to teach at the college where he ran the drawing programme for the foundation course.

This teaching was followed by work in advertising agencies in Johannesburg as well as undertaking freelance commercial art work. In 1985 he re-joined the College of Art as a permanent staff member to teach the foundation drawing course in all schools of the College. Tim also taught art history to first and second year students, as well as drawing and perceptual studies until eventually resigning in 1996.

Since leaving the College Tim has been working as a full time artist. He has specialised in portraiture and figurative subjects rendered in a classical representational style. Tim has also undertaken a number of bronze sculptures, including life-sized animals and people.

Tim Quirke’s art is heavily influenced by the work of the classical artists he has studied in depth over many years.
