Tanner Rhines

Born in 1995 - United States


Born in 1995, the young American talent Tanner Jackson Rhines aged barely twenty-years-old, is an emergent visual artist, full of big artistic tomorrow’s promises.

His artistic style, he named "Condention", defines itself as a psychological labyrinth which celebrates the life of characters mirroring his fertile imagination, in the space which they occupy. Influenced and indwelt by his generation’s culture, the complexity of the spirituality and polarities of the world, Tanner Jackson Rhines who draws the inspiration for his creations from comic strips and cartoons, explains his art vision in these terms: "Creativity offers infinite possibilities! I create artworks to express and share visually my mood and my thoughts inspired by my real-life experience and particular events which I experienced and that have marked my life. For me, besides the imagination and the wonder which it aroused, art performs the function of eclectic outlet for the public, and spiritual pathway on our place in the world and objectives which we pursue. I hope that the spectator who will look at my creations, will be able to recognize himself in this visual life which I create, through the representation of my characters, or the reflection on the brotherly union of humanity, this invisible link which gathers and connects us closely to the others, what I try to represent through my works. During the creation’s process, it’s important and essential for me to concentrate myself on the cohesion, the harmony and the homogeneity set, an adequate representation of the subject in its entirety, and the transmission of the underlying idea to pass on a little of myself which animates each artwork I create."

In 2015, Tanner Jackson Rhines was one eight high school students chosen from 350 000 entries to receive Scholastic Art and Writing’s prestigious Gold Medal Portfolio, which rewards since 1923 in the United States the young artistic, literary and cinematographic exceptional talents. This award places Tanner Jackson Rhines on equal terms with the previous excellent prize-winners, including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Cy Twombly Steven King and Robert Redford among others. This success allows the young talent to participate to the Art. Write. Now tour and to represent his artistic work accross United States during two consecutive years.

Further to this lightning success, one year later, in 2016, Tanner Jackson Rhines was shortlisted in the International Emerging Artist Award, hosted in Dubai, and was featured in CICCA Museum (Czong Institute for Contemporary Art) in South Korea, in addition to having art pieces displayed in the Washington DC at the Department of Education, as well as in the President’s Office for the Committee on Arts and Humanities.

Tanner Jackson Rhine’s unique style and work has been praised by professionals and contemporary art industry insiders as showing a level of talent and creativity rare among emerging artists.
Turned with optimism to a promising future, Tanner Jackson Rhines plans to attend art school in the future, to further develop his exceptional artistic skills and body of work.
