Tyler Keeton Robbins is a self-taught, multidisciplinary artist currently based on the unceded territory of sqilxʷ/syilx peoples in the Okanagan Valley. Always evolving, Robbins work consistently maintains a strong illustrative style no matter his medium of choice. Growing up on the Pacific Northwest, the art of the surrounding First Nations as well as the illustrated subculture of skateboarding’s second wave had a huge impact on his aesthetic as he was coming of age in the 90s. Since then Robbins has exhibited internationally with works ranging from pen and paper, paintings, and murals. He continues to explore the softer side of abstract symbolism, applying evocative form to diverse surfaces.
Tyler Keeton Robbins is one of ten artists we selected to be part of a community plan project by BlueSky Properties in Downtown Surrey called PARKWAY. Their mission is to bring community to life in Surrey, and for us, a focus on art and culture is what leads to a truly vibrant and activated community. With this in mind, we are using their new sales centre to highlight art and artists inspired by life here in BC. The first two images below were purchased from Robbins for the space.
