畢業於德國最古老且最重要的藝術院校之一慕尼黑美術學院,是一位解構主義的色彩畫家。他以傳統木版畫(panel painting)為靈感,再以類似鑲嵌木畫技
法將其畫作的表面拆解再逐步重建。2011年獲 BMW BRILLIANCE AUTOMOTIVE ART AWARD藝術獎項,近期甫完成德國班堡Villa Concordia 駐村計畫,經常性展出於歐美各大藝術博覽會。

如同義大利藝術家Lucio Fontana切割畫布,Freiwald 將各種破壞的過程作為靈魂的救贖、再生與治療,他鋸切、切割及灼燒畫布,再以顏料、木材、塑料和金
屬將其重組。由於色彩與媒材的交錯覆蓋,原有作品表面的感知也被破壞,也因觀者的視線會跟著被破壞的色線引導至不同方向,而使這樣的色線既神秘又
誘人。作品呈現出一種極為脆弱的繪畫結構,似乎即被分解成碎塊、裂片,也因他從不避諱破壞作品表面,藝術與暴力在他的美學上並置,彷彿延續著一種
無政府主義的達達精神。

Tim Freiwald, a master student of Thomas Scheibitz and Jerry Zeniuk, is a deconstructionist color painter. His works emerge from the intellectual ping pong-like process of action and reaction. Just as Fontana once slashed his canvases, Freiwald saws, cuts and scorches his, only to reassemble them using paint, wood, plastics and metal. “I want the paintings to be on the verge of physical collapse so that they only become stable through the painterly attraction between their elements.” The image here is a fragile pictorial structure; it seems to break into fragments, line splinters, angles and islands of color. Yet, it is held together by the playful and highly-volatile spirit that characterizes this kind of painting, as well as by the compact physique of the object-like image. Freiwald received BMW BRILLIANCE AUTOMOTIVE ART AWARD in 2011. From 2018 to 2019 he completed a one-year scholarship at the Villa Concordia, Bamberg. 

The viewer’s gaze is guided in different directions through reduced color lines, which are as appealing as they are enigmatic. Because Freiwald does not shy away from the destruction of the image surface; artistic beauty and violence are artistically juxtaposed and the chimerical horror is artistically banned, qualities that may reflect the prevailing zeitgeist. Aesthetically speaking, an anarchic Dadaist spirit lives on in Freiwald’s work.
