Ayres’ work is largely known for it’s use of texts, employing the sharp delineation of stencils to carry the word, or phrase, of the image. In the last year Ayres has moved away from the hard edge of the stencils and, in a radical visual shift, is now using his own handwriting directly into the image.


Tim’s work can be found in many private and public collections both in the Netherlands and beyond, including Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Schunk Heerlen, The New York Public Library and The Sharjah Museum of Art UAE.
