ABOUT THE ARTIST: Now a seasoned veteran in the art world, Tim Rogerson casts his artwork with very evident energy and passion. Inspired by the works of Edgar Degas and Malcolm Liepke, the North Carolina native has embarked on an artistic journey that has taken him from Degas to Disney to darling of the industry.
Using the medium of oil paints, he focuses on capturing people in social settings, “My work will always evolve, becoming more complex and detailed,” says Rogerson.
While studying at the Ringling School, Rogerson gained the reputation of an upcoming artist and influence in his own right. His unique style was recognized when he was awarded the 2003 Best Painter Award from Ringling, followed by the 2003 and 2004 Best of Ringling Awards. One of his recognized works was an emotionally powerful portrait of “Mr. Lincoln.”
Tim Rogerson’s success had come in the form of an official title. Named an Official Artist of the 2006 U.S. Olympic Winter Team, Rogerson took the POP world by surprise with his colorful and impacting style. Rogerson obtained this designation by working with an official licensee of the U.S. Olympic Committee, Fine Art Ltd. Rogerson’s piece titled “US Olympic Winter Team 2006” was released as both a limited edition giclée in an edition of 250 and an open edition poster. His contribution helped support the U.S. Olympic Winter Team.
“As my personal style is emerging and I break down the composition into simple shapes, with each shape having its own palette – it’s a jigsaw puzzle of color to form an image,” ~ Tim Rogerson.
ABOUT THE FILM: Lady and the Tramp is a 1955 American animated musical romance film produced by Walt Disney and released by Buena Vista Film Distribution. It was the first animated film distributed by the company and the first animated feature filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen film process.
Based on the 1945 Cosmopolitan magazine story of "Happy Dan, The Cynical Dog" by Ward Greene, Lady, and the Tramp tells the story of a female American Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with a refined, upper-middle-class family and a male stray mutt called the Tramp. When the two dogs meet, they embark on many romantic adventures and fall in love.
Lady and the Tramp was released to theaters on June 22, 1955, to box office success. It initially received mixed to negative reviews by film critics, but critical reception for the film has been generally positive in modern times, and the film is now seen as one of the best-animated films from Disney.
