The Artist Says:


"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, Interpretations Manager at Crystal Bridges Museum of Art



Collectors Say:


"I have never painted and am not an artist, but if I ever were to become one, I'd want to paint like you."



Other Artists Say:


"Your work stuns me, amazes me, intrigues me and puts me in awe. In my humble opinion, you are by far one of the finest artists of this century...and among the best of the artists I have had the honor and privilege of meeting.I wish I knew half of what you know about art and painting. Thank you for being who you are and for sharing." Sandy Askey-Adams
"I have traveled to all the important art museums of Europe; to many, several times in my life. This painting is not only the obvious best piece in the exhibit, it's the best painting I've ever seen." Charles Banks Wilson, at the presentation of Best of Show onto "Canning Pears""Wow, glad you harnessed that raw talent. Impressive, powerful sky and movement for a young  kid painter!" R. Buda

"For decades, local 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 2016
