Profile for Tyler Dixon

Tyler Dixon is a traveling painter and illustrator who enjoys painting surreal dreamscapes, primarily working in acrylics, large scale murals, and creating character concepts with a brush and black sumi ink. My collection of work draws inspiration from nature and the places I've traveled, to exploring the imagination in attempt to stretch it as far as possible. In my work I tend to use very vibrant color schemes with highly saturated colors or very pastel color pallets.

After studying Illustration in Philadelphia, Tyler began instructing painting classes in Texas during the summer of 2013. He was a featured artist for the 2014 Arts Goggle Festival in Fort Worth, and won first place in the 2015 Mural Painting Contest at the Pour House in Charleston, South Carolina.

In the summer of 2016, Tyler was drawn to the vibrancy of Colorado Springs and he now lives in an old Victorian home downtown with his wife. Tyler continues to paint large-scale murals across the country, and exhibit artwork in galleries throughout Colorado. In addition to being an instructor at Painting with a Twist, he also teaches therapeutic painting classes for individuals with autism.
