Fred Tieken’s paintings are based on impressions from his life experiences. His inspiration might be something that happened yesterday or a half-century ago. Tieken uses narrative in his work and likens the way the words work with the visual elements.   After a lifetime of staying within the lines, first as a draftsman and then a graphic designer, Fred Tieken no longer worries about such things. He prefers to use a lot of color and continually strives to channel his inner child.
