Chet Tucker is a published poet and photographer who creates art with poetry and photographs. While the respective pieces of art can obviously stand independently, Chet prefers to weave them together. In doing so, a depth is achieved which spurs a connectivity beyond the segregated puzzle pieces that he abstractly binds. His collection of combined art mediums has been branded "flowtography".
Chet was born in southern California, however he's spent most of his life growing up in the Great Plains of Texas and Oklahoma. In his early teenage years, inspired by the music and lyrics of Pearl Jam's "Release", "Black", and "Garden", Chet began writing. He wrote quotes, poems, songs, and "flows". It was then that his love of words in an art form began.
As years progressed, and the desire to continue expanding his creative nature, his passions extended to songwriting and photography. By his early 30's, Chet was creating in the artistic mediums of words, music, paint, and photography. As his collection of writing and photography grew, he made the decision to blend two of his favorite mediums. Without completely overlapping the art forms, flowtography was born.
After years as an executive in the corporate arena, Chet took a three year sabbatical to feed his passion for traveling, pursuing his artistry, and engaging in the creative community. He currently resides in the North Dallas area with his two daughters and works in mortgage finance. Chet has exhibited in two large solo exhibitions in Frisco and shown many other pieces of his work in several other shows around Dallas. Chet's photographic work also spans into fashion, travel, boudoir, portraits, wedding, and pet photography. For a few video presentations of his work, simply click on the YouTube icon.
