Petra Gut Contemporary is pleased to announce the first Solo Exhibition in Switzerland of Los Angeles-based artist Tyler Shields. It presents a comprehensive retrospective ranging over his entire career.
Tyler Shields, renowned as a fine art photographer, started as a pro inline skater before becoming the youngest artist auctioned at Sotheby's at the start of his career. Celebrated for his Andy Warhol-like works, Shields explores power and hyper-realism. His limited-edition prints, with only three copies per size, are globally sought after. He's known for photographing celebrities, like Bruce Willis and Elon Musk, and for challenging norms with daring shoots. Initially dismissed by magazines, Shields now commands their attention. His risky photography, involving daring feats with models, showcases his ability to turn the impossible into art. His precision and vision ensure models feel comfortable, establishing him as a unique force in the art world.
