Ty Dickey resides in Detroit, Michigan. His works have been well received, in exhibitions at the Carr Cultural Center and the Baltimore Gallery in Detroit, Michigan.
Ty creates his works from a strong African-centered viewpoint, drawing inspiration from his surroundings. His latest works are decorative fabric spools, a mixed media form that incorporates recycled cardboard paper and acrylic paint.
Each piece is elegant and unique; the same design is never painted twice.
Several of the pieces incorporate Ghanaian adinkra symbols. Other pieces are freeform, with geometric shapes and doodles that are created in the moment.
