Tim Christie is a New Zealand based designer and artist. His artwork adorns the walls of the new Hilton hotel in Wellington, New Zealand. He has developed some of New Zealand’s most iconic brands including identities for The Interislander, Radio New Zealand, New Zealand Wine and the city of Invercargill. The fusion between angular geometric abstraction and softer, anatomical forms, like faces, spawned an original and intriguing new aesthetic. His innovative, fashion-forward style has been described as a modern synthesis of Op Art, Pop Art, Street Art, Geometric Expressionism and De Stijl.
“I was curious to explore the relationship between a very controlled technical aesthetic and facial features, with the inherent symmetry of the latter providing a shared language between these two worlds.”
