Tim Clorius - Painter & Aerosol Artist


A news story by WCSH6 about Tim Clorius and his styles of Aerosol Art in the community.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Tim Clorius, oil painter and aerosol artist, shares his experience strengthening communities through the art of spray-painting. He also touches upon insights on how such experiences might just be the missing ingredient in both 21st century education and solving the obesity epidemic.

Tim Clorius is an oil painter and “aerosol artist”. Under the name “Subone” he
was the first artist in Maine to pursue a professional career as a spray painter,
labeling himself an “aerosol artist” to emphasize his interest in spray painting
legal, fine art oriented works ranging from abstraction to realism, yet remaining
resolutely what he terms, “graffitiesque”. After discovering his love for art in the
graffiti movement of the early nineties in Germany, Mr. Clorius immigrated to the
United States in 1998 where he became a fine art oil painter. His interest in exploring the potentials and boundaries that exist in the visual and social hybridization of traditional forms of painting with contemporary approaches has been a major theme in his public works and in his studio practice. In 2002, Mr. Clorius founded S.U.B.O.N.E Workshops (Supplying Urban Beautification Offering New Experiences) and began working with students to revitalize
communities, inspire positive action and foster civic engagement.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
