Tierney L. Malone

Tierney Malone is a modern-day storyteller who creates works on paper and mixed media constructions. He uses the canon of African-American history and pop culture to help him create contemporary tales about life. By invoking colorful and emotionally charged figures from jazz, sports and literature, Malone makes powerful and sensitive works that are both visually beautiful and politically provocative.
