Tyler Shields presented by Galerie Palü – Online Exclusive
In light of the current situation, we have decided to hold our first entirely online exhibition. It will be public from 3 April on our website and on our Artsy profile. This will be followed by regular updates and information on our social media channels.
It is our pleasure to present for the first time an artist whose work has revolutionised the world of contemporary photography, focusing on provocation and putting current and controversial themes in the spotlight.
Considered ‘Hollywood’s favourite photographer’, Tyler Shields was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and there is a unique story behind his work. Shields began his career as a music video director, and also worked with skateboard legend Tony Hawk.
Born in 1982, over the course of his career Shields has produced images that play with notions of gaze, hyperrealism, power structures, iconoclastic tendencies and cinematic practices.
As a filmmaker and photographer, he has worked with renowned Hollywood personalities such as Mischa Barton, Emma Roberts, Aaron Paul, Demi Lovato and many others.
Some of his works have been presented at Sotheby’s, London, which considers him the Andy Warhol of his generation.
