ARTISTS 2 Watch: Tyler Shields

TYLER SHIELDS is a cool artist who isnt afraid to play with fire.  After working with celebrities such as Matt Dallas, Rainn Wilson, My Chemical Romance, Zachary Quinto, Brittany Snow and the babes from Twilight, Shields' provocative portfolio of photographs, advertisements, and video portraits has become a feast for the eyes that the highest of celebrity profiles are vying to become a part of.
Shields, who is based in the sun-drenched city of Los Angeles, has a knack for using people, elements, and familiar faces to capture wild concepts such as greed, love, lust and death and neatly packing them in his photo series (one to definitely check out is the "Kills" series).  The photos are beautiful, piercing, engaging and ironic.

But Shields doesn't stop!  Today, you can find him working on his new book "The Dirty Side of Glamor", a new photo series, and a gallery, which Shields says will be open in 2010.

Working with blood, defying gravity, rolling in the mud and playing with fire are activities that most shy away from but Shields' use of the aforementioned has  had  blazing results.


  1. Tyler Shields is amazing. Hands down. I love the one with the flaming basketball. He is so creative & out the box!
