Tobias Fike is an interdisciplinary, contemporary artist who lives and works just outside of Denver, Colorado. He earned a BFA from the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 2000 and his MFA from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2011.
Beyond teaching as an Assistant Professor in Foundations and Fine Arts at RMCAD, Fike’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with exhibitions in Berlin, Germany; Coimbra, Portugal; Shanghai, China; Houston, TX; Tucson, AZ; and Chicago, IL, plus several other cities over his career.
The form of his work is unusually varied, and he approaches a range of concepts, from his personal experiences of family, place, and grief, to our temporal relationship with the universe and observations of time.
Fike has also done multiple national tours, showcasing his rich performance and collaboration-based projects with the Flinching Eye Collective, which was a 2014 Grantee of The Idea Fund, funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
Additionally, one of his collaborative works with fellow RMCAD instructor Matthew Harris is in the Kadist Art Foundation, Video Americas Collection housed, in San Francisco, CA.
