Tyler Bennett I was born in Los Angeles, California. I am one of six children who was raised by my single mother. Being poor forced me to be creative. Art is the outlet that I've used to express all of my emotions. I fell in love with Jackson Pollocks, No. 5 1948, and began working in both acrylic and oil mediums with a hint of spray paint due to my background in graffiti. My mission is to inspire others through the spontaneity of my palettes and brush strokes. For each one of my paintings is a part of me. They are full of raw emotion, they have no boundaries, they are abstractions.
