Tyler Hicks is a Los Angeles based visual artist. She's studied at Barnsdall Art Center in Hollywood, CSSSA at CalArts, and the University of Southern California. Her work is a meditation on her understanding of social and political structures (and how each of us fits into them) as well as an exploration of the ways that creatives can use their gifts to positively impact the collective consciousness in the United States (with the goal of spreading it outward). She dabbles in curation (of art, people, and ideas), project management, content creation, and event and film production. She has a passion for activism and service learning and has worked with disparaged communities in the U.S., specifically in Los Angeles and on Navajo Nation and Apache reservations, and abroad, in central Mexico, South Africa, Panama, and the Dominican Republic.
Tyler is interested in finding ways to bring art, social and political movements, design and technological innovation into widespread public awareness. She dreams of expanding the reach of inspiring, intriguing, and forward thinking ideas and people (especially those from marginalized communities). She believes that efforts to reclaim space, effect change and inspire others are what the world needs to see most right now.
Tyler can be found participating in and curating exhibitions around Los Angeles, selling and renting her artwork to TV set design departments, contributing her creative mojo to immersive events and media, and dreaming up mindful public art projects around the U.S.
