Sidney Tuggerson Jr. is a United States Marine Corps veteran.
In his decades-spanning work, California-based artist, Sidney Tuggerson Jr. has explored a wide range of art such as realism, figurative and abstract techniques through different materials and mediums. Self-taught, Mr. Tuggerson Jr. began drawing as a means of fulfillment and happiness, drawing for fellow servicemen while serving in the United States Marine Corp overseas. Once back home in the US full-time employment with Los Angeles Unified School District took a great deal of the artist’s time, yet he prevailed and found time, still motivated by nature, life’s realities, the love of his family. Between exhibiting presently around the city of Los Angeles and Inglewood, he exhibits nationally and internationally.
In his retirement Sidney volunteers as an art instructor with youth in Los Angeles at various youth centers and schools. He works closely with other veteran artists weekly for creative expression and camradery. His watercolor collection was exhibited with the Inglewood Open Studies in Inglewood California, 2017. Additional watercolor paintings of Sidney’s are on permanent display at the Baldwin Hills Kaiser Permanente Hospital.
