Biography:  Tiki Mulvihill


Since initial graduation (BFA, MA University of Idaho) the ‘reluctant nomad’, Tiki Mulvihill, continually alternated between rural and urban communities throughout British Columbia and Alberta. Constant transience activated her art-making strategies requiring commitment, ingenuity and a strong dose of self-motivation towards site-spawned installations, which generated ongoing discourse regarding the supposed truths we humans construct in our conflicted relationships with place. Over the years, regional activities also extended her role as an artist. Diverse employment as an instructor of art and dance; curating; along with coordination of educational art programs and art collections provided impetus for experimentation in multi-disciplinary, collaborative and community work. Her completion of MFA (University of Calgary) furthered her goal of varied connections through art.  Currently working out of a studio in North Vancouver, Mulvihill creates larger multi-media installations and sculptures while engaging in a number of collaborative and community-based activities
