About Tyler Hildebrand
Tyler Hildebrand was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. At a young age his mother kept him full of art supplies and from there his love for creating grew. As a child of the eighties, Tyler started out by painting a steady series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Tyler went on to the Ringling School of Art and Design in sunny Sarasota, Florida. There, his work was selected for the following honors: The Best of Ringling Art Exhibit, the annual “Embracing our Differences” art competition and twice selected for the Society of Illustrators Student Competition in New York City. Upon earning his BFA in 2007, Tyler returned to Cincinnati. He crossed the Ohio River into Kentucky to open Hilde’s Gallery. Much of Tyler’s work is Cincinnati themed, and includes sports, city scenes and portraits. Tyler enjoys painting on obscure objects and surfaces, and often spends garbage night sifting through the neighbor’s unwanted items in search of new things to turn into art. Old suitcases, crusty pizza boxes and rusted auto parts are commonly transformed into canvases. Some of his clients include, the University of Cincinnati, University of Notre Dame, Chicago Cubs, Turner Construction, and several magazines across the country. When he is not painting, Tyler enjoys coaching football at Turpin High School in Cincinnati.
