Since its founding in 2009 the Christian Marx Gallery has consistently supported its artist roster in achieving international recognition for their artworks. A focus of the gallery is the promotion of graduates of the well-known Düsseldorf Academy of Art. Since moving to „stilwerk Düsseldorf“ in October 2015 sculpture has taken up another focus in the gallery program. In the future the gallery will continue its special emphasis on sculpture, object and painting, while broadening its international scope.The Christian Marx Gallery presents its selected artists in numerous solo and group exhibitions as well as at international art fairs. Besides catalogues we publish editions on the work of our artist. We exclusively present international art in the field of sculpture, drawing, graphics and photography. The Christian Marx Gallery is a member of the Federal Association of German Galleries and Editions.


Tim Okamura, Stop the Violence, 2019, Oil, Thread on Wood Panel, 152,4 x 121,9 cm / 60 x 48 in

Tim Okamura investigates identity, the urban environment, metaphor, and cultural iconography through a unique method of painting – one that combines an essentially ‘realist’ approach to the figure with collage, spray paint and mixed media. The juxtaposition of the rawness and urgency of street art and academic ideals has created a visual language that acknowledges a traditional form of story-telling through portraiture, while infusing the work with resonant contemporary motifs.

Born in Edmonton, Canada, painter Tim Okamura earned a B.F.A. with Distinction at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Canada before moving to New York City to attend the School of Visual Arts in 1991. After graduating with an M.F.A. in Illustration as Visual Journalism, Okamura moved to Brooklyn, New York, where he continues to live and work.
