Further Biographical Context for Scott Lyall
Born in 1964, Scott Lyall was primarily inspired by the 1980s. The generation of artists that grew up in, and were inspired by, the nineteen eighties was influenced by a period of quickly growing global capitalism, political upheaval, significant wealth differences, global mass media and distinctive music and fashion, including electronic pop music and hip hop. The 1980s was the era of African famine, the height of the Cold War, and also the end of it, as marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall.
