Tony Toscani is a visual artist working primarily with painting. While his early work explored various styles and mediums, he currently focuses on figurative paintings. Toscani’s work takes an intimate look at scenes from everyday life while poetically fusing logic and spirituality. His figures wander in and out of distorted proportions, immersed in personal anxiety in what seems to be a familiar world yet overshadowed with unusual characteristics. Toscani most often links his work to our deep sense of melancholy and apathy permeating our private life.
