If you can
Simon Tyszko lives and works in London.
He has work in a number of private collections, and has recently been included in exhibitions and events at the ICA, London and the Jerwood Gallery, London.Theculture features an extensive collection of tyszko documentation.CritiqueAlthough working with a diverse range of media, Simon Tyszko’s work is a unity.
The joys and dysfunctional tragedies described
in Tyszko’s understanding of home life are complemented by his imaginative analysis of the wider, politicised social body.
Failing socio-economic and cultural value systems and their remorseless, cruel glamour and exploitation – such as advertising,
geo-political economics, legislative prohibition (drugs), and pop culture,all become areas of concern in the twists and turns of the artist’s
sound, or by the homely knitting of incongruous garments – straitjackets – Tyszko’s practice identifies social forms against which the artist places the prismatic dramas that are his art practice.
