About this title
Murray Tinkleman is an award-winning artist who has won gold medals from the Society of Illustrators, The New York Art Directors Club and the Society of Publications Designers. His illustrations have appeared in a variety of publications such as Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Tinkelman has been commissioned by The National Park Service to do drawings and paintings of National Parks and Monuments and by The U.S. Air Force to be an artist-reporter on specific missions. He has had a one-man exhibit of his baseball art at The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York in 1994 and The United States Sports Academy in Daphne, Alabama in 1995. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Delaware Art Museum, the International Photography Hall of Fame & Museum, and the New Britain Museum of American Art. The BESTIARY is a gallery of unreal beings. Each drawing smacks the eye with an instantaneous revelation of the pictured creature's character, the same way the snapshots in a family photo album seem to unmask the true nature of relatives captured with their personalities hanging out. These beasties might be related to one another, cousins perhaps. Each one seems to have a story, hinted at in the way they all appear to have been caught in the midst of a thought or action, or in the moment just before or after something has taken place. Members of some obscure species that came to be as a result of suits of armor mating with animals, the beasties have in common an extraordinary air of individual temperament and personality. Each drawing has the impact of stopped action making a point. They have the exaggerated, subtly mocking tone of caricature. Tinkelman has used unlikely combinations and a sense of distortion to give the beasties a grotesquely comic aliveness.
