Mia Tyler is an American artist, photographer, writer and model. She is the daughter of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler and model Cyrinda Foxe. She recalls being intrigued as a child by the constant strangers who photographed her and her family, curious as to how they were viewed through the eyes and lenses of the public.
After acting, modeling, and writing in Hollywood, Mia decided to get back in touch with her roots and rekindled her love affair with the arts. After receiving a camera as a birthday gift from her father, she assumed a new role behind the lens. Consciously deciding NOT to draw influence from other photographers, Mia was able to develop a style that was truly her own and pushed her exploration further by experimenting with mixed media.
Her debut show at Andy Hilfiger’s rock clothing and art boutique, RIFF, opened on February 23, 2012 and was titled “Through the Looking Glass” It featured an array of works close to her heart, including portraits of family, friends and lovers. As part of LFA’s “Survival” exhibition of Sept. 15, 2012, Mia steps further into her career as a conceptual artist and photographer of note through her innovative approach to presenting challenging subject matter combined with assured hand etching and use of evocative text from Facebook fans’ end-of-the-world confessions.
