Back in February of 2012, Tim Doyle had his very first solo art show, featuring silk-screened, hand-pulled prints at SpokeArt Gallery in San Francisco - "UnReal Estate." The show is a collection of locations that many of us know and have been to on a weekly basis, but we can never actually visit. These places are in our memories - transmitted and entrenched there through a cathode-ray tube. Some of us have been going to these places for decades - some of these places were taken from us, way too soon.

The series features TV locations depicted in a dark illustrative style that transforms bright and familiar environments into melancholy images. This spawned into an ongoing series of seven follow-up gallery shows - each show bigger than the last. In 2015 Doyle and SpokeArt launched and fully funded a Kickstarter for a deluxe full-color 150 page hardcover book collecting all the images from the first three “UnReal Estate” shows, including never-before seen photographs and essays, as well as behind the scenes sketches and process art.

SpokeArt & Tim Doyle will host this new gallery show in Doyle’s local town of Austin Texas for the first time. The gallery will showcase new pieces as well as classic prints from prior shows, original line work, variations, and more.

Doyle will be in person for opening night. The gallery will have copies of the UnReal Estate book on site for signings and sketches during the course of the evening.
