Tyler S. Arnold, 32, was born in Texarkana, Arkansas and now lives in Little Rock, Arkansas. He graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2009 with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations. He has been creating all types of art from painting to furniture for most of his life but only in the last 6 years has he decided to pursue a full time career in the arts. After researching art schools and seeking advice from other artists, he decided to forgo any formal training. “I believe that my own techniques are what set me apart from other artists,” Arnold said. “I get my inspiration from my family, my faith and my love for the outdoors, sports and animals.” He works in all types of media, but his main focus is his raw, emotional expressions on canvas in either oil or acrylic. His work is featured in many gallery exhibitions as well as various private art collections. He continues to strive to be above the average and to create new, inspiring works that push boundaries and limits.
