Tyler Auman was born and raised in the rural mountains of Tioga County, Pennsylvania. He relocated to the Philadelphia area in 1996 and received a formal fine arts education and a B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art in 2001. Influenced by expressionism, surrealism and color theory, his art utilizes a rich color palette and structure to engage the viewer. His artistic goal is to relay this perspective onto the surface, drawing the connections within his compositions using tone and form. Tyler continues to create and sell his work from his studio in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
