Ty Marshal’s Pink Clouds is a series of illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and objects.

In an effort to establish focus in his artistic practice, Ty spent one full year (2007/08) creating Pink Cloud themed artwork while living in a refurbished Chicken Barn on the outskirts of New Paltz, New York.

He occasionally revisits this theme with site specific installations, videos and paintings.

"Multi-media artist Ty Marshal revels in ironic juxtapositions. For instance, one of his recent paintings, "Chic Osama," depicts a menacing Osama bin Laden overlaid with four pretty pink clouds. Marshal does the same with notorious North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. When living some time ago in the Southwest, Marshal was inspired by what he called "the mountains of colorful clouds that Arizona possesses." They began appearing in his drawings. He has continued to place them in the backgrounds of his drawings and paintings ever since. "I decided to focus on them as foreground objects," he said. "This is how we’ve gotten to ’Ty Marshal’s Pink Clouds.’"

"You may recall Ty Marshal’s “Pink Clouds for Mayor Palmieri, display with the bold words, “UTICA DESERVES BETTER” capitalized among an array of pretty pink clouds, American flags and portrait of Mayor Palmieri himself featured in the beautiful display windows of an abandoned downtown building – that is now used as a food bank for vets.  (Artist Ty Marshal actually ran himself for the mayor of the village of Solvay, a suburb of Syracuse.)  When asked about this installation, North stated “I’ve actually never met Mr. Marshall, and a few of the Project-U artists were concerned about the public thinking that this was some sort of conspiracy against Mayor Palmieri, so I contacted the artist to learn that he wanted to portray his campaign slogan in multi-colored construction paper, as a reflection of the Mayor’s fundraiser for “Safe Schools”, where he raised close to $50,000."
