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.
