Artist Bio

Sculptor Tyler Aiello was born in Denver, Colorado in 1967 and grew up in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood. His family was in the design, architecture and development business and he was exposed to these disciplines from an early age. Tyler studied architecture at Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles and later attended the prestigious California College of Arts And Crafts. In school, Tyler studied all facets of the visual arts including architecture, painting, drawing, photography, wood and metal working, ceramics, glass, printmaking, textiles and jewelry. Ultimately, he weaved these interests together in a degree in Sculpture, with a casting emphasis. He also became known as one of the top design color consultants and decorative painters in the Bay Area while he worked his way through school. Always a community activist, Tyler helped found the artist warehouse district Jingletown in Oakland, and was a member of the vanguard experimental installation group Survival Research Laboratories.

In 1995, he made a tough decision, and moved back to Denver, with a dream of contributing to the cultural development of his hometown. With his family, the Aiellos purchased a dilapidated block in the now popular RINO Arts District with the dream of developing a full-functioning Art Center. Tyler renovated the property himself and in 2002 opened the contemporary gallery Studio Aiello along with his wife, painter Monica Petty Aiello. Within a short time, the gallery was lauded as one of the most innovative spaces in the city and quickly gained award-winning acclaim. In 2003, Tyler renovated and opened a second large warehouse, the TarFactory, adjacent to the gallery which served as a sculpture and fabrication facility for regional working sculptors.

While Tyler’s business endeavors were growing, his career as an artist was also expanding, and in 2005, the Aiello family closed the gallery portion of their business – choosing instead to focus on the art making side of their interests. Since then, Tyler’s career as a working artist has exploded on a national level. He is known for his elegant metal sculptures that blend his interest in science and natural forms, with a love of process and materials. His work appears in numerous private and corporate collections internationally. In 2009 he unveiled a large-scale public art work for the City of Denver at the historic Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater.

He often works with architects and designers and has been commissioned to do large scale indoor and outdoor works for corporate clients across the country. He has exhibited at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Center for Visual Arts, Foothills Art Center, Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities, Madden Art Museum and many regional galleries. Tyler has always been an active member of the arts community and has enjoyed sharing his interest in science and art through outreach and educational programs. His popular Our Place In Space! summer camp, developed with his wife, was recently featured at the Mizel Museum in Denver and at the Art Association of Jackson Hole. Tyler also lectures at many regional universities and consults in the curation and installation of corporate collections.
