Starting out as an artist with a simple website to showcase his strange intricate paintings, drawings and Toddlerpillar doll sculptures, Jon Beinart grew that website into an artistic community, gaining a respectable global following. He built on this by publishing art books and curating group exhibitions in the United States before reassessing his pursuits and co-founding the Beinart Gallery with Corinne Leita in Melbourne, Australia.
Tim Molloy makes ridiculous apocalyptic psychedelic art mostly in the form of surrealist comic books, paintings and sculpture. Available for Illustration and Commission work.
”My work is an ever expanding and interconnected web of dreamlike and nightmarish storylines soaked heavily in delusion, confusion and a general sense of unease. I draw heavily on surrealist techniques, symbolist ideas, synchronicity and dreams to construct my stories. Recurring themes include (but are not exclusive to) death, rebirth, the nature and expansion of consciousness, self-destruction and discovery… There is a kind of pre- apocalyptic tension throughout, balanced (I hope) with a sense of humor that stops it all from getting too serious…”
20 year history of the Toddlerpillars
This project evolved from Jon Beinart’s infamous insectoid doll sculptures, the Toddlerpillars, which were originally birthed in 2002. These sculptures were published widely in art books and popular magazines and they frequently went viral, reaching all corners of the internet. They were also exhibited in a number of galleries and museums.
In 2011 Jon moved on from this series of sculptures to focus on his oil paintings. In 2016 he opened Beinart Gallery with Corinne Leita in Melbourne Australia. This NFT project marks Jon’s return to one of his earliest artistic creations, the Toddlerpillars, in a partnership with the incredible illustrator, Tim Molloy.
