Born in May 1971, he is a native of Mobile, Alabama, his colorful paintings pay homage to his life experiences and his emotions. His distinctive personal style and use of color permeates throughout his works. Most of his works display his fondness for use of acrylic paints over black canvas.
Mr. Tover has led a very interesting life saturated in the arts, from lead dancer, to choreographer to local painter. Mr. Tover left Mobile early on in his life to seek culture in other communities. Ty spent a over a decade in the Los Angeles, California – the Art Capital of the United States. He has served on numerous artistic boards including the Disney Anaheim Museum, as well as many others.
Ty’s artwork has been shown in exhibitions in Mobile, Alabama, including the most recent exhibit by the Mobile Arts Council “A Celebration of Black Artists.” Mr. Tover’s work is currently featured on the Mobile Arts Council’s Virtual Art Gallery at https://mobilearts.org/virtualgallery/
Additionally, Mr. Tover had some of his artwork displayed during the February Loda Art Walk and was very honored to participate in that historical event, which also celebrated black artists and their contributions to the art community.
