Malcolm “Airbrush Assassin” McCrae is a full-time artist, author, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker who embraces creativity and art as a lifestyle. He has been an artist for over 20 years and is a leading educational authority in this topic, delivering lectures and training classes, producing instructional programs and publishing books. As a self-taught artist, Malcolm travels around the world inspiring people through art. Malcolm’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries, festivals, and fundraisers. He has toured with the African American Contemporary Art Exhibits. He describes his work as “Urban Fusion”; the fusion of life experiences, passion and creativity. In 2013, McCrae published his memoir “To Live, To Create, To Inspire; How Art Saved My Life” taking readers on a journey with his inspiring and empowering story.
Pollination Station Art Bus is a mobile, interactive experience that builds an environment of learning, creating and inspiration. This platform will provide tools and techniques for self expression through art and creativity. The vision behind this project is to develop public art opportunities that uplift the spirits of a community, while providing an outlet to discover and promote positivity and unity. By creating partnerships with community organizations, city planners, non profits, schools and youth based initiatives, Pollination Station takes a relevant approach of incorporating the STEM/STEAM process.

His Standup Comedy routine tells a story. Growing up in Hartford, CT, moving to Charlotte and everything in-between. His self-deprecating comedy style is something that everyone can enjoy.
Tyrone’s inspiration came about six years ago, before he’d started doing comedy. At that time, his brother-in law and his best friend had passed away, just one week apart from each other. Their passings inspired Tyrone to live the rest of his life using his God-given talents. One of Tyrone’s talents is the ability to entertain, so he chose to pursue comedy. Tyrone hopped on stage for the first time five months after their deaths.
Expect to experience the feeling of watching greatness in the making. You’ll get the feeling of, “I can clearly see this guy having his own special on HBO/Netflix one day!” Overall, you’ll enjoy it, and of course, have a couple good laughs as well.
Tyrone Burston: Started doing standup in 2013. Was named “Queen City Comedian of the Year” in 2015 & 2021. Has opened up for Bruce Bruce, Arsenio Hall and currently on tour with Adele Givens, just to name a few.
