Kerr, Tiko

Lives in Vancouver, BC

Artist Statement

For Vancouver artist Tiko Kerr, the ongoing refugee crisis and the current political conversation surrounding racial and religious identity has prompted him to creatively consider the way we look at the body and how it is encoded with meanings that are more artfully complex than first thought. His most recent works continue along this line of inquiry while drawing on images from art history and popular culture to explore the contemporary moment of widespread unrest and trauma. The distinctive wobbly style he developed and honed with his past work has been left behind and in its place is a deft handling of historically expressionist painterly styles, re-contextualized for today’s social and political climate.
