Not only is Tyson one half of the HQ team, he's also a contributing artist to the Headquarters Gallery. Tyson has been drawing and doodling for as long as he can remember. This hobby soon grew into a full time interest, as Tyson began creating large scale pieces with his signature style, influenced by 50`s-60`s sci-fi films and comics, rock and roll and Jim Henson. Using acrylic on many different surfaces, Tyson creates art that begs to be touched, often with a humorous yet macabre edge. These robots, monsters and imaginary characters pop off the background with bright colours and exaggerated features. Wrap this up in a glossy toy-like finish, and you have the embodiment of the artists work. An original native of Winnipeg, MB, Tyson has moved his home base to Montreal, QC, and is feeding off the busy artistic lifestyle that the city seems to breed. The opening of Headquarters Galerie & Boutique is the latest entry on Tysons "To Do" list.
