The Top 100 - Timed Auction (7/80)


A tutor at the Royal Drawing School, Tyga Helme’s vivid works are often inspired by the places she has visited.

Tyga 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. 

She explores the feeling of being overwhelmed through her drawing, finding her subjects in the spaces of transition and in the sublime. She couples the spontaneity of the moment with returning to places over and over again, allowing memory and imagination to permeate.
