In the Spirit of Tyree Tuesday: A Q & A with Tyree Guyton

Jan Morgan Niekamp: I want to say thank you, because when I came across the hp, I was sad, and you made me smile because of your art. How long have you been doing art since a kid?

        Hi Jan. I've been working on the HP for 27 years—and I am only 26. My grandfather inspired me and gave me a paintbrush at the age of nine. Since that time I knew I wanted to be an artist.

Ken Marzorati: Love you Tyree! Quick art question: what's your favorite medium to work with?

        Hey Ken, I love it all. I don’t really have a favorite medium—I need and love it all!!

Erika Lea: How many countries have you visited to talk about or make art?

        Hello Lea, I have visited about 14 countries to speak and/or create artwork. But more importantly, I have had over 140 countries to visit the Heidelberg Project in hopes of learning more about the art.
