TYLER Timothy C

TIMOTHY C  TYLER PAINTER SCULPTOR WRITER TEACHER “Tim Tyler is a contemporary artist who works in a representational manner. Inspired by the Old Master's Tyler's skills and technical ability to achieve high levels of realism are impressive, yet it is his visual wit, use of satire and clever method of social commentaries that he weaves into his compositions that elevate his works above practicing realist artists. A respected professional artist, Tyler has a distinctive career and received honorable recognition for his work from notable authorities and leaders in the arts such as the late Charles Banks Wilson.” Aaron Jones, Crystal Bridges Interpretation Manager  


After a lifetime in the arts, he has been awarded memberships in many of the most prestigious art organizations and racked up hundreds of awards.  He’s judged numerous art competitions and has taught painting for twenty five years. He feels artwork should be able to speak for itself, and power will be recognized, appreciated, and collected. His artwork now has been exhibited in over fifty galleries nationwide from Aspen, New York, Los Angeles, Scottsdale and Santa Fe. Scores of art museums have shown his pieces, three have purchased his work outright. "Liberty Upon the Altar of Freedom" was added into the permanent collection of "Museum of European Art Modern" in Barcelona, Spain. 

At age five he knew he was going to spend his life making art. Tim’s first oil painting was a commission at age fourteen. By age nineteen he was consigning work with the most important gallery in Scottsdale AZ. His realistic leaning oil paintings depict a wide ranging subject matter but all are infused with a strong sense of design. Light and color are two of the most commonly remarked upon aspects of his artwork. 

His oils are collected world wide and among his collectors are; Alice Walton, founder of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Amon Carter of Ft Worth, Fred Ross, founder Art Renewal Center.

 A lifelong athlete, he remains active in San Miguel De Allende,  a place perennially named one of the "Worlds Prettiest Cities" and known as a fine art mecca for seventy years.

"For decades,  artist Timothy Tyler has worked with paint to add a certain contemporary edge to his still life works. However, as with any artist, exploration and experimentation is a must, so now, Tyler has gained much notoriety from patrons and peers for his use of the female figure. While this could generally go into a conversation about the male gaze, Tyler instead portrays his heroines in strong poses. We talked with the artist about his studio practice and interests, where he added that “apples don’t stand a chance next to the human figure,” and we couldn't agree more." NWA article
