Tim Schouten

Winnipeg, Manitoba

Tim studied painting and drawing at Arts Sake Inc. in Toronto. He exhibited in group shows in Ontario and had his first solo exhibition, New Paintings at De Bello Gallery in 1995. He returned home to Winnipeg in 1996.

In 2004 Tim began an ongoing series of works titled The Treaty Lands in which he attempted to draw attention to First Nations issues and to the failures of the Treaties in Canada to account for their inhabitants. In 2010, he was commissioned by the North Dakota Museum of Art in Grand Forks to create a series of paintings reflecting on contemporary life on the Spirit Lake Reservation in North Dakota – one of six native and non-native artist engaged for this project.

Tim has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Winnipeg, Brandon and Calgary and his paintings are in a number of private and corporate collections.

Tim Schouten is represented by Gurevich Fine Art, Winnipeg.
