art crawl - tyler ramsey

 - tyler ramsey


Avoiding a paintbrush or any tool for that matter, Tyler prefers to paint with his hands to deliver as much paint as a canvas can withstand.  Tyler, "Rejecting brushes gives a painter the opportunity to approach the craft from a fresh perspective."





Besides his canvas pieces, Tyler has teamed up with TOMS to translate his work to another medium, shoes.  


I have seen a few pieces of Tyler's in person at a family member's home and the texture created from from the crazy amount of paint moved with fingertips is insane.  You can see more of Tyler's art on his website as well as some permanent installations around town.  Check him out here.

I am loving this series, Michelle. So look forward to seeing new art each week. And those shoes remind me of the 80s in the best possible way. Very cool.

I really like this series. I was asked the other day what my favorite, recent art (and artist, respectively) was and I had NO idea! It is just something that I have not kept up with, despite the fact that I am very interested and inspired by others' art. I'm volunteering this year at my daughter's school in the (Great artists program) and even if it is a little start, I'm glad to at least put it back in my life! And your posts will help as well, as it isn't a topic widely covered (at least in the blogs that I read!).
