Works by Fred Tieken

Before he first put brush to canvas, Fred Tieken had enjoyed successful careers as both a musician and graphic designer.
For more than 30 years, he was principal designer and creative director of his internationally recognized graphic design firm. During that time he received over 200 design awards and, in 1999, he was named one of the top 50 art directors in the world by Art Direction magazine.
Prior to his career in design, Fred was a prolific musician and producer, releasing numerous albums and singles that are still in demand by collectors. His music has been featured on compilation albums, both in the United States and Europe.
Fred's abstract contemporary and figurative paintings have been received critical acclaim and enthusiastic coverage from the media. His paintings come from the heart and tell the story of his life experiences.
Fred created his first public work of art in March, 2012, when he was commissioned to create art for the 126-foot-long mural at 3rd Avenue and McDowell Road in Phoenix, Ariz.
In January, 2013, Fred's painting The Artist was chosen by Artlink Phoenix to the the face of Art Detour 25, the city's premier, yearly showcase of the downtown art community.
Since he began painting in 2010, Fred's work has been featured in more than twenty juried exhibitions and one-man shows in Arizona and California.
