Tanden Launder

I am a multidisciplinary artist hailing from North Idaho. Art has been a lifelong ongoing through many mediums originally in product design, then restoring old buildings. My now career as a quasi traditional artist revolves around the west and the pop culture that gleans from it. My true roots being creative comes from growing up with no TV, having to literally make my own fun and reading loads of biographies. Ones on the likes of Buffalo Bill, Amelia Earhart, John Dillinger, Sitting Bull, the list goes on. Those books now serve as the part of the collage material I use to build up the background in my art. The key is the layers, I focus on what I call "the draw", the part of the artwork that captures you at first glance and draws you nearer as you pick up on more and more detail the closer you muse. You will end up a foot away reading some 1930's newspaper article or studying the wide contrast of mediums I interchange. The intention is to have a piece of art that rests easily in a space and reveals itself the more time you spend with it, you could say a visual biography of sorts. My other mediums are simply channeling my creative overflow.
