Laser Beak Man: The Adventures of

Laser Beak Man: The Adventures of

Through animation, drawing, puppetry models, interactive elements and much more, this summer Rockhampton Art Gallery will showcases the largest exhibition of Laser Beak Man ever presented.  Laser Beak Man: The Adventures of is an immersive journey into the word of Laser Beak Man, into Electric City as the super hero works against the evil powers.  This red-beaked superhero with a cheeky sense of humor is set to be one for the whole family, full of laughter and tears as your explore the works of Tim Sharp. 

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 from around 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. 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 things he wants most in life, acceptance and inclusion, an encouraging word, a happy smile and friendship. This is the story of autistic artist Tim Sharp who has overcome incredible odds, creating Laser Beak Man at the age of 11 as a way to help him communicate with others, and no an internationally recognised visual artist.
