Bio : TY THA ARTIST

————————————————-

Born & raised in Vallejo, CA, Martin G. Wood a.k.a. TY THA ARTIST possesses a wide range of talents in developing multimedia including graphic design, audio production, video production, and other creative art. As a young entrepreneur and college graduate, TY THA ARTIST credits his artistic creativity to the unique challenges of his busy, everyday life.

“Only a select few artists in the music scene could juggle music and a college education and reach success in both realms. I respect Ryan Leslie and J.Cole for that and I feel it reflects in their work.”

Dating back to high school when most kids spent their time playing sports and video games, TY was on the computer constantly foraging the web for new internet tutorials that would help him make better graphics and more professional sounding music.

“I can’t settle with just getting by. If somebody else is out there doing something, I feel like I can do the same, but do it better.”

At the time, the young entrepreneur was making good money for his age, but it wasn’t until he arrived in college that his skills were noticeably becoming more polished. Many students around him would only invest the bare minimum effort in order to get a passing grade, but TY would always stay after class to talk with his teachers in order to accumulate even more methods that would bring his art to the next level.

“Even though I completed my Bachelors degree, I’m still pursuing my Masters Degree in Multimedia. Some say I’m a perfectionist, but I say I just never stop pushing.”

With a mindset of “persistence pays off”, TY THA ARTIST has risen from the overcrowded group of newcomers within the current state of hip-hop culture to make himself a true artist with matchless potential.
