Tycho, David

About the artist
David Tycho was born in Vancouver in 1959, and later attended U.B.C., where he studied painting under renowned Canadian artist Gordon Smith. Since graduating in 1983, David has explored numerous Modernist styles and themes, and his work has straddled the genres of abstraction and representation, at times more experimental and intuitive and at other times more reflective of his surroundings. For many years, David's work was mainly informed and inspired by the wilderness areas he backpacked in, but recently his work has a distinctly urban look and feel. His current subject matter includes streets, railroad tracks, warehouses, train stations, airports and skyscrapers, all in varying degrees of abstraction. David has exhibited his paintings in Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Kelowna, Penticton, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Seattle, Los Angeles, Brussels, Geneva, Singapore and Manila, and his work is collected worldwide. In addition to being a painter, David is also an often published writer and the winner of a Canadian Literary Award. When not painting or writing, David can be found travelling, hiking, cycling or practicing karate.
