Welcome to my website my name is Tye Forde. I have a great passion for all types of art. I am a self taught artist with no formal art qualifications or training. I just create weird and unusual pieces that I either find amusing or I just want to express myself. I have a studio at The Cube Art Centre, High Street, Erdington, Birmingham.
I’m certainly no professional artist and not graduated via art college or university. In fact i haven’t done any art courses whatsoever. My art pieces are often simple to make you think and whether it makes you smile, laugh or cry then that’s good. I believe in strongly in recycling so I recycle reuse materials as often as I can. My artist journey is self financed. Artists will either make thousands or even millions or are skint and struggle along to make a living.
I consider my style to be kind of Pop Art/urban/abstract more modern with a twist each piece sends a message to the art fan. I’m a contemporary artist so its rare you will find me painting landscapes etc I like to do statement pieces regarding whats going on in the world or whats happened. My ideas just come looking at current views with a creative aspect. I have a very dry sarcastic sense of humour which I will use in some art pieces.
