Anthony is a Jamestown, New York native, but decided to continue his graphic design concentration at The State University of New York at Buffalo. During his studies of art and art history, he became fascinated with street art, graffiti, pop art and abstract expressionism. The artists he became most enthralled with are: Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Denny Dent, and Jackson Pollock. Researching these artists, he was inspired to create a hybrid art form using stencil images of graffiti, subject matter of pop art and the emotional colors of abstract expressionism. He likes to use a spectrum of color to accurately represent these pop culture and musical icons and he does this by studying them, listening to their music and watching their movies. By creating these pieces he hopes that his audience can appreciate why the colors and subject matter were chosen.
