“I think true creative art is rare,” says Washington based photographer, Tye Martinez (aka Tye Died.) “But when an artist gets exceptional at creating their own unique style, that is when they truly contribute to the artistic world.” For The Phoblographer, Tye is undoubtedly someone who has taken their style and ran with it. His moody, dark, and sometimes twisted concepts are, in their own way, stunning. Every idea has meaning, and each detail is an essential cog in his creative wheel. Online, he is somewhat of a mysterious character. He says very little, however, whatever he does say delivers significant impact – that’s why we were so intrigued by his work. Eager to know more about the person behind these marvelous creations, we reached out to Tye; he gave us one of the most insightful and engaging interviews to date.
