The Artist - Tyson Hall
Was raised in the Bronx amidst the hip-hop culture evolution that took place in the late 70's early 80's. He chose graffiti as his art form because they could always find a medium to express himself. At John Jay College while enrolled in an art class he was inspired by the film on the life and art of Jean-Michael Basquiat; Tyson purchased his first piece of canvas and began to paint. At this time, he gave unity to his graffiti and drawing. Painting became a vehicle for the communication and expression of Tyson's spirituality, culture, and values. His art conveys cutting edge themes, addresses social forces and their influence on the community.
Tyson Hall's artistry is profoundly honest and represents New York!

Tyson's artwork provokes the eyesight to look deeper. The
work is multilayered with the
history of our culture and insight into the future. His unabashed use of deep colors mixed with an aesthetic that hearkens back to
the design quality of street art
is crisp and edgy. He is an artist to
watch as he continues to evolve
and pushes his own boundaries".
Tyson's art is vibrant, full of life and brillance!
