Tyler Armstrong is a Canadian artist living and working out of Burlington Ontario enveloped in highly expressive figurative and still life paintings. Since 2011, Tyler has showcased work in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Mississauga and London Ontario. In 2013, he joined a roster of contemporary emerging and mid-level career artists for a group show at the Living Arts Center in Mississauga entitled, Borderline. In that same year he exhibited a two week long show at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, entitled Paradise Lost. In 2012, Tyler presented his first solo show in Toronto at Goodfellas Gallery; he would go on to have consecutive solo shows in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Tyler joined Angell Gallery's 2015 Summer Group Show and also participated in the VIBE Arts auction that same year and will make a third appearance in the auction in Spring 2017. The auction benefits youth arts in Toronto and is curated by Jamie Angell of Angell Gallery. In 2016, Tyler was included and co-curated the group exhibit, Full Spectrum, at the Living Arts Center in Mississauga as well as the group exhibit Spring Training at OnlyOne Gallery in Toronto.  In 2017, Tyler’s painting ‘Hypocrite’ was chosen by Spanish publisher, Fulgencio Pimentel, to be featured on the cover of author Ruben Lardin’s latest novel, “La hora atomica” (The Atomic Hour).
