Tyrone Richards

b 1988 Los Angeles, USA. Lives and works in Basel.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The works of Tyrone Richards center around issues of the collective consciousness. Politics, Religion, Spirituality and Science are captured within aesthetic moments. Disturbance and attraction are both part of his work, forming a conglomerate of experience.

Often working in labor-intensive techniques, such as his pointillist style, the artistic process is a space of contemplation and meditation.

Focusing mainly on drawing and painting as his media, Richards often refers to the mythology and tradition of the material.
