TIMONANDA coined the term FolkPoP to describe his work because it balances ancient/homey/simplicity with ideas that reflect the popular culture. Informed through the traditional Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi and modern artists like Henry Matisse, David Hockney and Basquiat, Timo embraces a more direct approach to art that he feels reduces the overly-complicated and opaque to something more holistic and real.
Wabi-Sabi is a concept, an aesthetic as well as a world view. Simply put, an intuitive way of living that embraces finding the beauty in the everyday imperfections of life, and accepting the natural cycles of birth, change and death. Noticing the fragility of a faded rose or appreciating impermanence of a shadow cast upon a dew covered lawn, this is Wabi-Sabi.
