15 December 2018 – 17 February 2019
Through animation, drawing, puppetry, models, interactive elements and much more, this summer Rockhampton Art Gallery will showcase the largest exhibition of Laser Beak Man ever presented. Laser Beak Man: The Adventures of is an immersive journey into the world of Laser Beak Man. Enter Electric City and join our fearless super hero in his struggle against the powers of evil. Tim Sharp’s red-beaked superhero and his cheeky sense of humor will win the hearts of the whole family.
Tim is an internationally acclaimed artist most famous for Laser Beak Man but also for the hope and inspiration he brings to so many people all over the world. Tim was diagnosed with autism when he was three-years-old. Such were Tim’s enormous difficulties that the doctor's advice was "that the best thing to do was put him away and forget about him." Rejecting the prognosis, intensive therapy began immediately and bravely Tim tried to overcome what was so terrifying and difficult for him. At the age of 11, as a way to help him communicate with others, Tim created Laser Beak Man and in the process successfully forging a career as an internationally recognised visual artist.Today Tim makes many public appearances to spread the message of ability and acceptance. He raises tens of thousands of dollars for charities each year. Art allows Tim to enjoy some of the things he values most in life: acceptance and inclusion; an encouraging word; a happy smile; and friendship.
