Tim Cantor is a superbe artist, he has the art written in his DNA, his great-grandfather Lioyd Dundas Whiffen was an artist who travelled a lot, and Tim paints since he was only five years old. His first work, the seascape, is a beautifully obscure and fascinating oeuvre considering he was only a kid. His vision was already extraordinary and full of passion.
He has always had a vivid, fantastic imagination and his works are so incredible that an entire rainbow of emotions comes to the minds of the spectators. Is a huge honour for us to present you this interview made in collaboration with two amazing writers and art lovers, Martina and Vania Belli who gifted this piece with a familiar, personal and precious touch. The questions are posed to both Tim Cantor and his beloved and sweet companion, his wife Amy Cantor.
