– Asheboro, North Carolina native and founder of Mightier Than The Sword Records, Photography & Literature/Heart’s Core Art Store, Tyler “Ty Bru” Brueilly has been well accomplished in many facets of art over the course of more than two decades of international activity.
“It all started with writing, I was told that writing was an art form in high school and I took it seriously. Poetry in the late 90s made its way into spoken word and hip hop before the hit of 2000. Then came performance which is its own layer of art and of course learning to create the music behind the words was inevitable Looking back after ten years of that you really get to know the craft, the art and that time that you used to spend learning, can be used to learn something else. So that’s what I did,” Brueilly said.
Brueilly entered the professional art exhibition circle in 2012 with a visual art series titled “Beholder” which used photographs of an abandoned auto body shop owned by his grandfather. An exhibition in Asheboro, one in Shanghai, China, before becoming a mainstay of the LabourLove Gallery in Durham. “Photography helped me show another side of myself. What catches my eye rarely catches another person and when I saw this in my travels I could never find the right words so I just used the photos. Now I have over 40 movies under my belt and almost 200 fashion designs and I’ve used a ten year plan for each of them, in its simplest form, that’s what “On X: Increments of 10” really means.
Brueilly’s third instrumental album, Year of the TYger Part 3 will be released at this event as well as a world premiere screening of the video clip of ‘Do Lang Rock’ which he made for the Greensboro artist Mr Roszi. Series of 75 coins from Brueilly “Striking Scenery” will be unveiled and an interactive section of the exhibition will allow participants to watch 30 of his films and listen to his 15 albums. Four tracks from his upcoming spoken word album will be recorded live at the reception, along with a music video for his song, ‘Legacy’
