After attending the he Hoschule fur Agawandte Kunst in Vienna, Tm Gratkowski went onto receive a BS and a BFA from UW and a MA from SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. Although his education and early works are rooted in painting and drawing Tm has spent most of his professional career as an artist creating collages made of thousands of pieces of paper layered to construct a surface rich in patterns, images, text. He uses this lexicon of information to reexamine popular media as a vehicle for social criticism. The work is both visceral and intellectual.
Tm Gratkowski is represented by Walter Maciel Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
