What is unique about Anthony's work is that he makes paintings to fit antique and vintage frames. His mixed media style incorporates drawing, painting, and photography into each finished piece of artwork.
Anthony draws inspiration for his artwork from movies, books, music, and other artistic media. He is especially interested in the social commentary that surrounds artistic culture. In his artist statement, he says, "The messages in my paintings are visual metaphors for my experiences in modern life. All of my work has social messages woven into the concept and visual structure of the images. Dichotomies are especially important to the foundation of my work. Old and new, beautiful and ugly or good and evil all get fused physically and conceptually in my pieces."
You can currently find his paintings at Turning Art.com, Silver Queen Fine Art in Park City, and the UAA Gallery in SLC. Check out Anthony's Facebook page to keep up with his creative endeavors, and visit AnthonyGranato.com to get limited-edition prints or original artworks.
