FLINT — Many Genesee County residents observed the work of artist Tim Kranz at the Flint Art Walk last week during the “Guerilla Art Show.”
Kranz, a former professor’s assistant at the University of Michigan-Flint, has worked on murals all over the area. He worked on the Riverbank murals, the History of Flint mural on Fenton Road and worked with students on murals at Flint Southwestern Academy and Meyers Elementary, as well as other schools. Kranz has also had two solo art shows and taught painting classes for UM-Flint’s Outreach Program.
“I’ve committed to showing my work for the first time in about 4 years at this impromptu art show. I took time off from oil painting to work on murals and private work for people’s homes,” Kranz said.
Kranz, who has done several self-portraits dressed as famous artists, also has done specialized work in homes.
In 2001, he won the Gold Award for painting at Mott Community College as well as the 2000 Judge’s Award for Oil Painting at UM-Flint’s student art show at the Greater Flint Arts Council. He will be attending graduate school at Kendall College of Art and Design. His work can currently be seen at the Montrose Orchards.
