Tyler Austin Brown is a writer and performance artist born and raised in Orange County, California. He attended the Orange County High School of the Arts where he studied in the creative writing department. Tyler graduated from the Johnston Center for Integrative Studies at the University of Redlands in the Fall of 2014, with A Bachelor’s Degree in Writing and Performance, Experience and Observation.
His writing is primarily in the genres of Nonfiction and Poetry covering topics such as Mental Illness, Sexuality, Politics, Religion and anything else you might avoid in conversations at the dinner table. Many of Tyler’s works are trials with experimental forms, often with a greater focus on process than product. Tyler has also written a collection of rap lyrics that are currently in their production stages with the first demo tape scheduled for release before the end of 2014.
As a performance artist, Tyler has written, directed, and produced three large scale installations, the most recent of them taking place in a laundry room, where he performed tracks chosen by audience members out of an analog jukebox he created. At the Johnston Center where he studied performance art theories and practices, Tyler became inspired by the action art and performative social practices produced by experimental artists of the 1960s, particularly within the Fluxus movement. His current and future projects will seek to reflect this inspiration and of course, cause a great ruckus to the status quo of life.
Subverting the normality of life is the end game of any and all of his expressions.
