Focussing on disconnection in an always connected, hyper sharing world, the texture and depth of Tyler Scully’s paintings are created through layers of impasto and wet on wet techniques that gives his subjects a texture that deforms and decays the source material.

An expressionist painter from San Francisco who is now currently residing in Los Angeles, Scully’s artwork portrays a sympathetic insight into the humanity of his subject, their environment and circumstances. The imagery featured in his paintings are often taken from pictures found on various social media sites in an endeavor to comment on the reality of the inhumane disconnection that modern society has become.
