Bigtwin is the alias name of Jim Suhre, a New York based artist working in both traditional and electronic mediums. He was born in 1965 in Indiana and grew up on a grain and livestock farm. In 1988, he received a degree from Stanford University in Economics, and promptly moved to New York and began work as an artist.
Bigtwin's work seeks to explore the union (and dis-union) of several
seemingly opposite and inverse concepts. Namely,
TechnoRomantic mixed-media paintings combine 3-Dimensional models created on the computer, with impressionist imagery painted with water-based goauche.
Analog Circuitry drawings explore unifying ancient/future, animal/machine, symmetry/uniqueness, and digital/analog.
To pay rent, he does commercial art as well.
