Tyler Armstrong is a Canadian artist living and working out of Burlington Ontario enveloped in highly expressive figurative and still life acrylic and oil based paintings and drawings. He has showcased work in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Ottawa, Mississauga and London. In 2013, he was invited to show work in Borderline, a group show at the Living Arts Center in Mississauga alongside a roster of contemporary emerging and mid-level career artists. 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 in the same space respectively. Tyler joined Angell Gallery's 2015 Summer Group Show and Forest City Gallery’s annual member group show and fundraiser. He has participated in the VIBE Arts auction since 2015, an organization that benefits youth arts in Toronto curated exclusively by 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). He was included in the Sussex Contemporary’s inaugural month long group show in Ottawa. In 2017 and 2018, Tyler created three consecutive group shows of emerging and mid-level career artists under the banner ‘Simmer’ and all three shows were hosted by The Costume House in Toronto. He was also included in the group show ‘Summer School’ held at The Assembly Gallery in Hamilton and curated by artist Andy DeCola. July of 2018 Tyler participated in the Toronto edition of ‘Got It For Cheap’ (traveling series of group shows including 750+ artists) curated by Andre Ethier.
