Speakeasy Art Gallery presents: Anthony "Weird Eye" One: Something Wild
March 7 - 30 Please join us for the opening reception Friday, March 7, 6-9pm
For many years, Anthony's fine art has focused on abstract patterns & illustration, usually around the characters he painted on walls. So about a year ago, he decided it was time for a change, and slowly shifted away from those box-shaped characters and focused more on "real" objects like animals and a mix of pop-culture, in addition to patterns which have become more intricate and organic. Additionally, his illustration style has become more detailed and a bit rugged much like the jaggedness of tree branches. His murals are also more focused on organic "flowing" patterns and textures as well. Backgrounds & negative space in his art are similar to what you may see in Jackson Pollock paintings, except Anthony splatters the paint in a way to show "movement and motion". Most of Anthony's fine art is painted & illustrated on both paper and his own homemade wood panels, and he uses a mix of spray paint, acrylics, gouache and homemade inks that he makes in his studio.
Anthony weird*eye*one's new body of work, "Something Wild" focuses on all things beautiful & scary that you may find in the outside world, where he spends most of his time, both hanging out and painting.
