Tim Wistrom - Artist

Many people don't know his name, but they know his paintings. He's often referred to as "the artist that paints Seattle underwater" or "the artist that paints peaceful post-apocalyptic scenes of  cities."  Still other people know him as the artist that creates amazing surrealism, so detailed it looks like a photograph. And many had the opportunity to watch him paint at Art Shows in the malls during the 70's and 80's  - his original paintings were of boats, lighthouses, and Northwest scenes. His artistic career  has spanned 44 years, and counting. He is the guy; Tim Wistrom - Artist, and yes, he's still doing it.

"Look at my paintings with a sense of humor and creativity, as my goal is to spark your imagination. Consider a world gone by and a world yet to be. Just Imagine! " -Tim Wistrom


Tim works with acrylic paint on canvas, using paint brushes. There are no computers, no projectors, no airbrushes, not even a plumb line - only the paint and brushes. Every painting is done completely freehand, the old fashioned way. He is a natural artist, self-taught, showing his talent at a very young age. His career started in 1969, when he was still in high school, and continues today.

The lure of the road has recently called Tim again, so for the past 8 years he has been showing his paintings at a variety of Art Festivals in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, and Florida. Each year he participates in about 30 Art Festivals.

Born in Germany to parents in the US Air Force, Tim grew up in Germany, on the East Coast, in San Diego, and Seattle.  Although his travels take him all over the world, Washington has been his home for over 25 years.

Giclee (zhee-clay) is a French term, in this case meaning "spray of ink". A giclee is a Fine Art Reproduction on Canvas, from the artist's original painting. Most of us cannot afford to buy an original painting, so giclees are the next best thing. They have the look, feel, and longevity of an original painting for a fraction of the cost. Each is personally signed, numbered, and enhanced by Tim, creating a unique and individual image.
