This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in London, England and based in Las Vegas, Nevada, Tim Vavington airbrushes vertical bands of acrylic paint onto horizontal canvases. He takes most of his titles from rock music and uses his computer to develop schemes whereby colors correspond to melodies and instruments. Involved in this process is the "transposing music and text as the basis for his work. 'Surprise, Surprise', for example, is based on a guitar solo in a 1965 song of the same title by the Rolling Stones. On the left side, Bavington linked the twelve-hue color wheel to the twelve-tone musical scale, assigning every note a different color. He varied the width of the painted bands to match the length of each note in the music. The faint lines on the right side of the painting roughly correspond to the time structure of the same musical solo." (Bayles)

Tim Bavington was born in London and came to the United States when he was eighteen, first going to Pasadena, California where he attended the Art Center College of Art and Design. He later moved to Las Vegas, where he received an MFA degree from the University of Nevada and studied with Dave Hickey, art critic and curator. In 1997, Bavington began his signature striped paintings. Influences on his work are the optical paintings of Bridget Riley and conceptual paintings of Ed Ruscha.
