‘Back To The Future’ Biff Has Future As Artist

BURBANK, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Tom Wilson is best known for playing “Biff” in Back To The Future – but his real future may be in the art world.

That’s because Wilson is getting good reviews for his series of paintings featuring a variety of pop culture artifacts like Frisbees, yo-yos, Popsicles and ViewMasters.

Wilson will have his first solo exhibition starting April 29 at the Nickelodeon Studios in Burbank, California, and says he wants his paintings to evoke a nostalgic reaction similar “to the way people look at me when they recognize me as Biff.”

It’s taken him three years to complete the collection, and he’s particularly proud of his eight-foot-long picture of a Tonka truck.

Wilson doesn’t know where his work will take him, but thinks he’ll keep painting nostalgic toys like balsa wood airplanes and ray guns because, as he puts it, “Every time someone sees my work, they suggest another object that would be just as inspiring.”
