The Wynn Las Vegas is a renaissance venue. When you set foot on the property, you can stay in a luxury accommodation, enjoy some entertainment, head to the club, indulge in some fine dining and now – tickle your art fancy. The Wynn has unveiled a staggering 1,750-foot art installation from LA-based artist Tyler Ramsey. The new piece allows guests to enjoy the “walkable art,” with a Wynn flair.
The Wynn Las Vegas may be home to some spectacular art and design, but the newest piece by Los Angeles-based artist Tyler Ramsey takes it up another level. Or several levels, in fact. The half-mile long art installation is Ramsey’s newest piece, embracing a combination of urban street art and contemporary color and expression.
Take a stroll down the 1,750-foot walkable mural and explore each section for a dive into the way Ramsey’s mind works. Each different section of the half-mile walkable installation captures a different creative element and exemplifies Ramsey’s style. However, the piece goes beyond that. Like most public and urban art pieces, it embraces the heart of the city it sits within.
The mural embodies and reflects the vibrant, living, ever-changing scene that is Las Vegas. When you’re ready to see this remarkable art piece, strap on your walking shoes and go for a stroll. Every inch and foot is worth the walk, and you’ll delight in the colors and expression Ramsey has captured along the way.
Ramsey has been creating art for over 15 years. Prior to taking a full dive into the world of artistry, Ramsey was a producer. After leaving the entertainment industry, he was able to focus all of his energy on his love of painting, and he has created beautiful pieces along the way. Ramsey’s team shared in a statement, ” He sold out his very first art show, and since, has been coined the “most interesting man in [art]”. He has created works for celebrities that include the likes of Clint Eastwood, Gary Sinise, Bill Clinton, and many others. His work is also featured at the Santa Barbara Art Museum and can also be found throughout LA on billboards as well as his famed- Ferrari cars at Art Basel.” Dubbed, “The most interesting man in the (art) world,” by Argonaut Magazine, other notable names who own pieces by the artist include Ban Ki Moon, Santa Barbara Art Museum, ORU, Peter Farrell, Kevin Farley, Blake Mycoskie, among others. Currently, Ramsey is the artist in residence at Control Collective in Mar Vista, CA and has worked as the resident artist at TOMS footwear, producing over 100,000 hand-painted, collectible shoes.
Speaking of Art Basel – that’s the next place Ramsey has his sights set on. It’s a world-renowned art fair that happens in several places around the world including Miami. This year’s Art Basel Miami will happen December 2 through 4 at Miami Beach.
