Tyler James Bush | Idaho Statesman – FEBRUARY 29th, 2008
I have been described as a Modern Renaissance Man because of my wide range of interests and talents. I'm eager to learn new traits, and I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. The arts are my passion, and since a young age, I have been building and creating in a myriad of mediums. Whether I'm working at a desk, in a shop or outdoors, I'm comfortable using the tools necessary to get the job done. I hold degrees in Small Business Management and Computer Animation, and for the past 14 years, I have owned and run a multimedia company. I'm confident I can do any job I apply myself to—and do it well.

Claytown comes to life in the hands of Tyler Bush

Idaho Statesman – FEBRUARY 29th, 2008

By Erin Ryan

There is a world where the Stat­ue of Liberty is mere blocks from the Taj Mahal, and souls are trapped inside the glittering bodies of luxury cars and yachts bigger than the local zoo. It is Claytown, named for the count­less pounds of modeling clay lo­cal artist Tyler Bush used to cre­ate and recreate his own fantasy city over the last two decades. Bush’s miniature playground is the result of a third-grade art contest he won with a pair of clay anteaters, A modest home for the creatures turned into a lifelong project that includes Vegas-style casinos next to opu­lent private homes and iconic Disney castles. Every inch bears the unique imprint of Bush’s fin­gertips, which will mold new pieces during a First Thursday demonstration at Boise’s Fox­trot, where a large section of Claytown is on display.

The exhibit will be up through Sunday, March 9, and visitors are encouraged to imagine themselves strolling the whim­sical streets of a realm that melds what Bush calls, “my life as it is and my life as I want it to be.”
