Artist - Tyler Jackson
Jackson moved to Wellington four years ago to undergo his Bachelors of Fine Arts with Honours. During his study, Jackson was the recipient of the R T Nelson NZ Emerging Artist award. Hosted by the NZ Art Show, the national award is given to four recipients each year across New Zealand. Since finishing his study, Jackson and four others have opened their own artist run gallery and studio space in the Wellington CBD, “play_station”, to showcase other emerging and established contemporary artists across New Zealand. He continues to be based in Wellington, where he is focusing his time exhibiting in both solo and groups shows across New Zealand.
