VIRAL ART PRODIGY TYLER GORDON, UNVEILS TIME MAGAZINE COVER WITH VIRTUAL ART
New York, NY (December 10, 2020) - Tyler Gordon, the 14 year old artist prodigy that went viral
with his freehand portrait of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, has created works of art for an
array of influencers and celebrities to include J. Lo, Kevin Hart, Kevin Durant, Missy Elliot and
many more. As a young visual artist, Tyler has become the first runner up in the TIME
Magazine/Nickelodeon first ever “Kid of The Year” awards which saw Tyler face off against
hundreds of amazing, eligible children and teens doing great things in the world. Though not a
winner of the top prize, Tyler has been commissioned to paint the cover art for an issue of TIME
Magazine that will profile NBA superstar, Lebron James. Though he has painted Lebron in the
past, Tyler has created an original piece of work for the cover story and will unveil the resulting
portrait and the official TIME cover itself as part of a virtual art gallery event entitled: “The Icon
Collection: A Tyler Gordon Original” where he will also showcase various works of art that he
has created that depict his favorite icons in today’s modern history that he has painted portraits
of. This infusion of art, history and lifestyle is a needed distraction for the pandemic weary
public and a prime opportunity to engage with Tyler’s growing fanbase.
As mentioned, the event will be a virtual reality experience to indulge the array of consumers
that are unable to physically visit the locations of Tyler’s paintings. This will be executed in
partnership with Art Appl NYC and a Switzerland based VR company - VRAll, who has a state of
the art desktop and Oculus viewer with a mobile AR view known simply as VR-All-Art . VR-All-Art
serves as a platform that allows users to explore virtual reality exhibitions in real time, as well
as buy actual art pieces through their VR application. Anyone with an Oculus VR headset,
laptop/desktop computer or touchscreen phone has the ability to download the app and
experience the gallery show in an immersive experience from anywhere in the world. This
unique event component allows for a COVID-19 restrictions compliant event opportunity for
anyone to participate in.
“We are excited to launch our first virtual reality exhibition on our inclusive art's community
web page to further expand the reach of artists and build relationships with audiences during
the trying times of the pandemic,” shares Moises De Pena, Founder of Art Apple NYC. The
information-filled arts web page will host Virtual Reality Exhibitions to help support our local
artists internationally which allows consumers to identify new talent via mobile devices, PCs
and Oculus headsets,” adds Moises.
Currently, Tyler's artwork, including the infamous Kamala Harris piece, is on display in Beverly
Hills, California as part of the "Heirs To The Throne'' art gallery exhibit presented by The Lost
Warhols Museum in partnership with the Beverly Center. This exhibition explores the vast and
beautiful fine-art works of black artists including Bradley Theodore, Robert Peterson, Cavier Art,
Penda Diakite,Showzart, Sage Gallon, Shantell Martin as well as Art Icon, Timothy Washington,
with Tyler being the youngest artist on display. The “Legends of Time'' gallery exhibition will be
a natural extension to what Tyler already has in motion and be mutually beneficial for all
