Tysen Knight Art Exhibition
July 1 - August 5
Street artist Tysen Knight will present his collection of paintings and drawings as a part of his “MasterPiece MashUp” series, where he reimagines paintings from artists such as Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, and Grant Wood. The art exhibit runs from July 1 through August 5.
Tysen’s art is based on Buddha’s teachings and pop art sense and is inspired by the works of famous street artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. He was responsible for a project, “Street Bench Art Pilot,” conceived by the Palm Springs Public Arts Commission, the City Council Downtown Subcommittee, and Main Street Palm Springs. Tysen created a series of benches throughout downtown Palm Springs with the theme, “Urban Desert Palms and Icons,” including Garland, Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Frida Kahlo, and Lucille Ball.
