William Tyler

William Tyler has been working at Creative Growth Art Center since 1978, one of the longest attending artists in the studio. He is a productive, dedicated artist whose precise, ordered black marker drawings on paper reflect a fascination with fantasy and reality and the sometimes thin line between the two. The intricately rendered landscapes and interiors are built through repeated patterns, figures and dialogue boxes into psychological narratives. William draws images from both his personal experience and his opinion of the world and its cultural icons to create a symbolic place where order reigns over emotion but the world of make-believe rules equally with reality.

Born 1954, Cincinnati, OH.
