Evan Tyler is an intermedia artist, gallery director and curator who uses all three entities to tell the story of the human condition in all of it's mundane brilliance. Tyler works in video, photography, drawing, writing, text and performance. Humour and the absurd are consistent themes in Tyler's work which he uses as entry-points in acknowledging and perverting social behaviour as well as the models, tropes and templates inherent of contemporary culture.
Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Evan Tyler grew up making home movies and rap recordings. The Fine Arts Program at the University of Regina honed his multidisciplinary practice and in 2008 he earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA), majoring in Intermedia.
