Tyga Helme

Born in 1990, Tyga lives and works in the UK. She is a painter and printmaker with drawing lying at the heart of her practice. She uses the directness and urgency of drawing from life as a springboard for all her work, finding her subjects in nature’s edgelands; where trees and mountains meet the sky, where sea meets rock or tangled in undergrowth. In working from life she celebrates the spontaneity of the moment whilst also building on memory and feeling by returning to places over and over again.
