Taylor currently creates from his studio in the south Bronx, New York, where the action, intensity and energy of this historic epicenter propells his work, a return to his abstract roots. Embracing change as the only constant, Taylor has carved out a nomadic creative path rather than set up a solid home base. The unpredictable and distinct energies of his different working environments have been absorbed into his process – from the grit of Vancouver’s downtown east side, the neon glow of the streets of Kanda, to the spell of nature in a cabin studio above the Fraser Canyon.
In 2015 Taylor was awarded a residency at the acclaimed 3331 Chiyoda Arts Centre, in Tokyo Japan. In addition to creating a body of work shown alongside fellow international artists, he covered over six hundred kilometres of the metro area on foot in his two month stay, the beginning of an immersion in Japanese aesthetics that now inform his stylistic sensibilities. Taylor has since returned to Japan almost yearly for ongoing inspiration.
Taylor was a merit scholarship candidate at the school of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has been featured in Ion Magazine, The Vancouver Sun, The Vancouver Observer, Scout Magazine and Artweek LA. He is represented by McQueen Agency across Western Canada, and has recently colabarated with Burrit Bros.Fine Flooring on a series of custom designed rugs for their notable Artist series. Works by the artist are held in private and public collections throughout North America, Europe and Japan.
