Minds Filled Creatively
Taylor Reinhold was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California. He started the Made Fresh Collective in 2009 and since then has been working to promote creativity amongst the youth through artistic community outreach projects. He has organized and led workshops in multiple non-profit organizations such as Youth Now and Mariposa Arts.
In 2011 he was granted a Nation Endowment of the Arts Award to co-curate the first ever Urban Arts Festival in Watsonville, California. The event aimed to educate the youth about public murals, silk screening and sustainable art. Since then he has been accepted into the Santa Cruz Mural Registry and plans to bring more community-based art projects to Santa Cruz County.
Currently, he designs and produces original, hand-made clothes and wearable art with fellow artists in the Made Fresh Collective. Every Made Fresh piece of clothing is hand printed with sustainable ink in Santa Cruz, California. He also enjoys painting and silk screening on found objects from the urban landscape, such as recycled spray cans.
With his ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude, grassroots approach and eccentric style, Taylor sets himself aside from other artists; his graffiti-influenced artwork brings wild characters, vibrant colors and street art to the canvas.
