ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Tyler Guinn is an Austin, Texas based artist and creative consultant. Guinn's most recognizable  work in abstract expressionism is characterized by intensity in texture, balanced color fields and layers of distress. A lifetime Texan - his experiences in small business entrepreneurship and advertising guide an approach to art that is notably empathic to the audience. Every piece has a backstory which he shares through transparency in process and engaging content.

STATEMENT:

"Abstract expression has the power to capture your attention, and the humility to take on your own interpretation  - cultivating that experience is the responsibility I feel as an artist. I'm inspired by scriptural and quoted truth which can be shared in the format of colorful but intentional abstractions. I make art that I feel must exist. What you see on the canvas is my interpretation of the world, its creation, the creator, and his relationship with us all. I want the work to feel living and active, as if I have just stepped away to let drips continue to run while layers dry. This journey is just beginning, and I'm honored to share it."
