Rex Wade Hoyt's interest for photography began at age six in rural Evans Falls, Pennsylvania, while trying to familiarize himself with a family of which he knew very little. With a BFA from the Tyler School of Art, in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, earned in 2000, Hoyt's career evolved from fashion portfolios and commercial assignments for nightclubs to Contributing Photographer and then Photo Editor of "Swirl Magazine," a Philadelphia guide to urban nightlife in 2001.
During his educational years, a delightfully extensive study of art history, psychology, chemistry, mathematics, and anthropology all influenced and "molded" Hoyt's creative thinking processes as well as his productions. Hoyt refers to his psychologically innovative work as landscape, bodyscape, and mindscape.
Currently concentrating on his own fine arts, Rex Wade Hoyt has donated pieces for three out of the past four years to "Need In Deed," an organization raising both awareness and money for the promotion of youth civic opportunities in the Philadelphia area. The annual "HeART Show," a juried exhibition of work donated by both local and national artists, serves also as a silent auction in which all proceeds go directly to the organization. Winning the honor of first place in February 2003, was the reward for his continued dedication to a much worthy cause. Rex Wade Hoyt continues freelancing, as well as producing new fine art photography and writing for exhibition and sale.
