Troy Murray a.k.a. TYP is a multidisciplinary artist based out of both metro Detroit and Los Angeles. He works in a variety of mediums, typically blending painting with fabrication and 3-dimensional elements. He specializes in what he calls "alternative canvas", where he uses 3-dimensional objects to create his substrate and paints subjects that correlate with them in order to bring a story to life in a unique way. Beyond expressing his creativity, he uses art as a charitable platform and a way to make an impact in the world, whether it’s through teaching art to children in countries across the globe, or donating a portion of the proceeds from his work to the Premier foundation based out of Greenville, SC.
