She plans to change the stereotypes of female artists because her bars are for real. Ty Bri also enjoys giving back to her community and motivating young girls. She has even included the Shaw High School girls’ band and dancers in performances. Ty started to take over the Midwest when she remixed Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up,” which was later  added into rotation on radio all over Ohio. She is also featured on Ray Jr.’s song “Big Tuck” and “Cook” by DJ Ryan Wolf feat. RootaBang. Since performing at Z1079’s Summer Jam and White Out in 2018 and 2019, Ty Bri received early co signs from other female artists such as Trina, KashDoll and DreamDoll.

WhoJoseph Lee (1987, Indiana), Dennis Osadebe (1991, Lagos)Erik Mark Sandberg (1975, Los Angeles), Joshua Vides (1989, California)

DREAMstate” aims to exhibit the exclusive artistic approach of these four internationally known and trendsetting talents that are bringing new vitality into a specific technical and aesthetical idea, through the use of patterns, optical illusions, decontextualized images and ambiguous imaginaries that lead toward the creation of a new dimension. The strong familiarity of this with actual reality will destabilize the viewer, throwing him in a confused state of deja vu’. Solid bold lines, illusive interiors, surrealistic figures, hypnotic arrangements, thick brushstrokes, subconscious revelations and visual puzzling, will channel their energy into a clean and dreamy form that affects the whole environment, able to immerse the spectator into a dreamlike atmosphere.
