Artist in Residence – Tyler Witzel

Tyler Witzel is a multidisciplinary artist from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. His past work has seen him utilize a broad range of mediums including film, animation, puppetry, and sculpture.

An avid sketchbook keeper, drawing is always at the core of any project he engages with. Tyler is currently working with drawing and painting exclusively, applying graphic narrative storytelling to single illustrations on paper, using a variety of media.


Taking cues from the local instruments of labour and industry, as well as pondering Icelandic folklore and magic, Tyler is creating visually dissonant works that reflect his perception of how these elements interact and exist in the same space.
