Tyler Armstrong is a Canadian artist who works with figurative based acrylic and oil based paintings, drawings and collage. He has showcased work in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Los Angeles, Ottawa, Hamilton and London. In 2013, he was invited to show work in the group show Borderline, 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. His most recent solo effort was in January of 2022 in Toronto where he exhibited a new collection of work.
In 2015 he joined Angell Gallery's Summer Group Show and participated in the annual VIBE Arts auction (an organization that benefits youth arts in Toronto), which was curated exclusively by Angell Gallery. In 2016, Tyler was included in and co-curated the group exhibit, Full Spectrum, at the Living Arts Center in Mississauga.
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 that same year. In 2017 and 2018, Tyler created and curated three consecutive group shows of emerging and mid-level career artists under the banner ‘Simmer’ in Toronto as well as exhibited works in a group exhibit in Los Angeles.
