(B.1987 Philadelphia, PA)

While not formally trained, Lypka has aimed to achieve strong technical ceramic abilities through an intense practice in his studio.  With a dedication to experimentation and a propensity for trial and error style learning, he has been able to explore the boundaries of the ceramic material, and the dependable subject of the figure.  His work attempts to exist inside paradoxical and in-between spaces, ironic and sincere, personal and general, literal object and symbolic illusion.  Kyle has been living and working in Oakland, CA since 2011.
