Antonio creates cartoonesque figures which he uses as subjects to explore the highs, the lows, and in-betweens that life throws at us. Through narratives, each work explores the possibilities and potential of characters that emulate feelings familiar to us all. Best way to describe his work is a cocktail of chaos with tongue in cheek light-hearted humour.
Antonio earned a Fine Arts degree at Eastern Illinois University and has won many awards throughout his academic years. Since graduating, he has participated in many group exhibitions across the United States. In 2022, he brought his new-age psychedelic oil paintings to Asia for the first time by participating in the “Saper vedere” (“knowing how to see”) group show in Japan and Art Central, Hong Kong. Antonio currently works and lives in Chicago, IL.
