Further Biographical Context for Tyrel Broadbent
Born in 1954, Tyrel Broadbent grew up during the 1970s and was influenced by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The art sphere of the 1970s was characterized by a desire to evolve and strengthen itself, as a response to the many conflicts of the previous decade. One of the most central movement of the 1970s was Conceptualism, which appeared as an offshoot of Minimalism, while the experimental, creative journey of Process art materialized by combining essential elements of Conceptualism with further reflections on art itself. The earliest ideas of environmentalism sprung from Land Art, which took art into earth itself, carving the land and bringing art to the outdoors. For the first time since the regression of Abstract Expressionism, Expressive figure painting slowly re-emerged and regained its status, particularly in Germany through the works of world renowned figures Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz. Most of the leading artistic figures of the 1960s remained greatly influential and popular throughout the 1970s. Andy Warhol, for instance, secured his status as a legendary artist, by bifurcating into film and magazine publishing, thus instituting a ground-breaking concept of cross-cultural activity for a visual artist of such popularity Reaching the end of the 1970s, street art, emerging from graffiti, was starting to truly fascinate the fine art community. Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat helped legitimize spray painting and tagging, proving that their artworks could subsist at the same time in art galleries and in urban settings. Following, the international extent of street art would become extremely significant, representing an astonishing form of artistic expression.
