"Tim Tyler is a contemporary artist who works in a representational manner. Inspired by the Old Masters, 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
