The art of Tim O'Brien GAvA.


Welcome to the art of Tim O’Brien GAvA where you will find a mix of contemporary and traditional art to creatively enhance your home or office interior. Tim helps both interior designers and architects create a bespoke art collection for their clients as well as accepting commissions from private individuals, military associations, merchandising and publishing companies.

Two paintings in a modern/graphic style that were exhibited in the 2017 Aviation Paintings of the Year exhibition at the Mall Galleries, staged by the Guild of Aviation Artists. Left: 'Follow the Bear' features two RAF Typhoons escorting a Russian Bear. Right: 'Like a bat outta hell' celebrates the 70th Anniversary of Chuck Yeager's pioneering flight that broke the sound barrier.

Tim is currently working on a large, prestigious commission to provide 25 specially-created oil paintings for the Royal Air Force Club, Piccadilly, London. The paintings have been designed to complement the recently refurbished dining-room that overlooks Green Park as part of their Centenary celebrations in 2018.

One of the first tasks was to was paint outdoors in front of College Hall, RAFC Cranwell to produce a small scale ‘pochade’ oil sketch for a much larger painting set in the early/mid 1970s with a Jet Provost formation overhead.

The second task while at Cranwell was to collaborate with ‘The Band of the RAF College’ who are thrilled be part of this exciting new art project. Tim O’Brien GAvA was their guest for a couple of days, sketching preparatory pencil drawings during rehearsal sessions at Cranwell before seeing one of their public performances at Newark Palace Theatre.

The final paintings will be revealed soon.
