Ty Nathan Clark
Ty Nathan Clark has been creating in multiple genres since he was 4 years old. Ty grew up in a family imbued by culture. His uncle was Conway “Jiggs” Pierson, the world renowned Sculptor and Raku artist, who impacted his drive and passion for the arts at an early age. He has been exhibiting nationally for over 15 years and in 2010 was named one of America’s Brightest Young Influencers by Catalyst and one of ten contemporary artists in Austin to watch in 2017 and 2019 by Culture Trip.
An artist, writer, designer, activist, and filmmaker, Ty has shown his work in 15 states across the United States and is currently in an artist cohort through The Brehm Center in Pasadena, CA led by his mentor, renown abstract artist Makoto Fujimura. In 2019, his Award Winning film Jump Shot (Producer) was an official selection for SXSW Film Festival. Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is the Executive Producer of the film.
His work is a representation of his memories, thoughts, prayers and dreams that he has compiled on his journeys, through his friends stories and his own writings.
"My hope is that the work drives the viewer to an internal conversation of memory and meaning giving them clarity amongst the tension in contemporary life."
