Timothy Atticus, a New York City-based artist, lives and works in Manhattan. Atticus graduated from the Cooper Union School of Art and received the TAM prize for excellence in Fine Arts. Atticus holds a Master's in Art History from SUNY Purchase in New York and was awarded the Neuberger Museum of Art Curatorial Fellowship.

His work was first recognized nationally at The Whitney Biennial in 2008. The Museum of Modern Art's, Joan Pachner, wrote in a catalog on his recent work:

"Light is the ineffable lifeforce that animates these abstractions. Atticus, however, seeks to separate light from its descriptive function, much in the same way that Jackson Pollock separated line from contour. Flickering bands of silver and gray suggest internal light, an attempt to evoke the mysterious and dramatic spiritual glow that is familiar in Baroque painting of Rembrandt in Holland, Caravaggio in Italy, as well as Georges de la Tour in France."

Atticus' recent exhibitions include the following: NY Abstract Now: 7 New-York based Abstract Artists at Mathilde Hatzenberger Gallery in Brussels, NEW NEW York: Abstract Painting in the 21st Century at The Curator Gallery in New York and the University of Hawaii at Manoa Art Gallery in Honolulu. In 2016, his work was exhibited at Zürcher Galerie in Paris. In a review written by Bowery Boogie's Lori Greenberg, his work is described as "...paintings [that] seem to be lit from within."
