Tim Blighton is a self-taught sidewalk chalk artist, stencilist and poet. His visual artwork employs and repurposes popular culture, whether rendering his daughter's favorite fictional character, reassigning new identities to his childhood superheroes, or subverting traditional art with his cow-headed "Moo-na Lisa." Tim is influenced by artists such as David Zinn, Federico García Lorca, Banksy, James Baldwin, Sylvia Plath and Erik Ruin. Tim Blighton's poems have been published in Ibbetson Street Press and Mush/Mum. For the past two years, he has crafted poetry-on-demand at the Powderhorn Art Fair, and at the Midway Revitalization Project, and has read at Powderhorn's Poetry and Picnic in the Park. His chalk art was part of the Monarch Magic! Outdoor Performance installation at the 2016 Monarch Festival, but is readily found around his front steps.
