Park West Gallery Launches Tim Yanke Website

SOUTHFIELD, MI — Park West Gallery announces the recent launch of a website for Michigan-based artist Tim Yanke. The site features information about the artist, a virtual gallery of his artwork, and exclusive video footage of Yanke showcasing his work.

Yanke’s abstract artworks are distinctive; from his explosive, visually appealing color palettes, to the random numbers and words scattered throughout the canvas, energy and excitement emanate from every Yanke work. While many of his works are purely abstract, others incorporate discernable imagery. Particularly evident in Tim’s imagery is his fascination with Southwest iconography, including Native American headdresses and shields and Kokopelli images.

Yanke has formidable drawing skills and is able to render flawless, realistic images, yet he prefers to work in the realm of abstraction. Of his choice to pursue a career as an abstract artist, Yanke has said, “The beauty of abstract art is that a hundred different people will have a hundred different interpretations of a work. Abstract art is reminiscent of play and childhood. It’s fun…fun to do, fun to look at, fun to experience. It evokes emotion…curiosity. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

The growing number of collectors enthusiastically acquiring Yanke’s artwork wouldn’t have it any other way, either. “Tim’s works have become increasingly popular with collectors worldwide, and individuals and businesses alike have commissioned Yanke works,” said Park West Gallery President Marc Scaglione. “It doesn’t look like the demand for Tim’s work will be fading anytime soon.”

This new Tim Yanke website makes his fine artwork viewable worldwide and continues Park West’s mission of bringing fine art to people everywhere.

My husband and I attended our very first auctions on our most recent cruise and we had a blast – not only that but we bought two! I just wanted to comment on how knowledgeable, friendly and great the Park West staff was – Paul, Paul and Clare. Without them, I am sure we would not have had such a good time and come home with our new art!! They made the auctions fun and the process easy! I can’t wait until my next auction.”

Mbuso conducted the auctions and art lecture on board our ship. My husband and I had a wonderful time. He was knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. We would have spent more money, if we could have. We definitely hope to attend another art auction soon and hope that our experience is as good as our time with Mbuso. As a company you should be very proud to have him as your representative.”

I just wanted to take a moment to compliment ‘American’ Paul’s help and information with regards to this art auction. Both my son and I bought several pieces of art from him. He was always available and very personable and always had the information when I needed it. You should be most thankful that you have him for an employee of your company. He is a great asset!”
