Tyson Grumm is an American artist who studied Fine Art at Southern Oregon University. Tyson's work is imaginative and invites the viewer to tap into there sense of curiosity. Grumm leaves no space for political propaganda or philosophical ruminations. He makes no points about human misery and offers no solutions for the troubles of the world. He captures a playfulness that is too often missed in contemporary art and allows the viewer an opportunity to regress into a simpler world where difficulty gives way to daydreams.
Tyson draws from common objects from his own surroundings, this provides a sense of similarity to his work. Created entirely in the mind of the artist, these colourful and imaginative works juxtapose seemingly incongruous elements, such as humans, wild animals, and whimsical backdrops within each frame, resulting in a surreal topsy-turvy world.
Grumm has exhibited widely throughout the USA and internationally. His works can be found in many private and public collections in Europe and the USA.
