Tim Olsen is one of Australia’s most recognised and respected art identities and successful gallery owners. He is son to one of Australia’s national living treasures, artist Dr John Olsen, A.O. O.B.E. In 1993, Tim founded his gallery which has today become a leading Sydney institution—representing Australian art in countless art fairs around the world. Along with representing over 40 artists, Olsen has established himself as a key figure in the modern and contemporary art scene of this country and abroad. He is a major donor, benefactor, patron and sponsor of art prizes, scholarships and charities and is regularly invited to be a guest speaker or judge for events that foster art education and creativity in the community. As a creative business visionary, he was recently invited to join EO (Entrepreneurs Organisation), a selected forum of leading entrepreneurs.  Tim Olsen's memoir, 'Son of the Brush', was published in November 2020.
