Tim Dubitsky was born in 1978 in Michigan. Dubitsky earned a BA in studio art and psychology from New York University in 2000. Dubitsky works in a style that he has coined “autopluralism.” Drawing from the stylistically free forms of the 1970s, his concept-driven body of work includes a range of design projects and exhibitions.
Designs include “By Request,” a gourmet sit-down dinner with a menu offering the last meal requests from death row inmates, presented at Doyer Street Gallery in New York City, and “Grey,” a re-bound book of white supremacy and black power publications, presented at Partners and Spade in New York City. Dubitsky also designed Hood.e, a hoodie designed with MP3 player speakers in the hood, made in collaboration with fashion designer Angel Chang as part of New York Fashion Week in 2008. Dubitsky was part of a New York-based collective group called Line Up, including artists and designers Amelia Bauer, Robert de Saint Phalle, and Tobias Wong, which formed in 1998. They contributed the project called non-mailable matter to The Book of Stamps, published in 2008 by Cabinet Books in New York and The Greenwall Foundation. This project consisted of a redesign of postal stamps featuring items that are forbidden to mail through the US postal system.
Dubitsky previously worked with Li Inc., the multi-disciplinary design studio formerly known as Work in Progress. Li, Inc. helped organize Self Service Magazine and The Wrong Store, which was presented as part of New York Design Week in 2007.
Dubitsky’s awards include the New York University Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts in 2000, and the 2002 Visual Harlem Grant from the Jacob Lawrence Foundation.
Dubitsky currently lives and works at Artesea in Hawi, Hawaii.
