Contemporary Artist Wilson Bowers

Wilson Bowers Artist

As a Florida indigenous contemporary artist, from the Big Cypress reservation, I now reside in Hollywood, Florida. I’m a self-taught artist with works in the digital, acrylic and spray paint mediums. I find interests in many different aspects of life and inspiration can range from my own culture to “Pop” culture. Pieces I put up in and around my communities, give me a sense of pride in who I am and although not always appreciated, it does not stop the creative process and outlet.

Tyler Tigertail Art Honoring Ancestors

Tyler Tigertail Artist

So I started doing art in elementary school but really started to focus on it when I was about 16. I get my inspiration from the swamps I grew up in. I’m from Big Cypress born and raised. My grandfather Little Tigertail got me into wood working. So I just want to honor my ancestors and continue the traditions they had. The Seminoles fought and defeated the US government so I come from a warrior people so that’s where I get my inspiration for my knives and axes. At the end of the day I just want to honor those who came before me. Stay classy soflo, Tylor D. Tigertail Sr.
