Tony Armadillo retired after 40 yrs of education. Twenty years in Special Education and 20 yrs in Art Education. His art can be viewed thru Fine Art America and antonioartista.com or by reaching him on Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Portraits of political, social, and family themes are his passion. He also creates portraits for those who seek a unique and personal narrative of an individual. He paints in the manner of the Renaissance approach in oil painting. Underpainting and many layers of hues are incorporated.
He has entered and won national and international awards and is currently entered in virtual exhibits in California and Dallas, Texas. Many of his works incorporate a surrealistic design quality that greatly expresses the emotional side of humanity. He wants to challenge the viewer to consider issues and facts that affect mankind. Many times, such as in School-Age Wasteland XX, viewers are shocked to witness a 4 foot by 5 foot mixed media composition with young bodies slaughtered in school. They are victims of 20 years of gun violence at school. Viewers are shocked but are captivated by the message and haunting composition. They cannot just walk away.
His goal is to have his political works accepted in a gallery so that the public can witness and consider these issues and not just simply walk away and ignore them.
