‘Mary In Bronxzooland’ by Tony Philippou

Opening in conjunction with ‘Farewell Avery’ is the debut west coast solo show from Bronx, NY based fine artist Tony Philippou. We’re honored to be able to host Philippou’s first major collection of new works after several successful showings over the past few years with our gallery in various group shows, including trips to Miami during Art Basel this year and last. In addition to the new series from Tony Philippou, we will also feature select new works from Philadelphia based artist Joshua Mays as part of our ‘Fresh Faces’ series this October in our project room.

Bio:
Tony Philippou was born in 1978 in Bronx, NY and still resides and creates there to this day. His intentions are to explore the reality and relationships of humans using the theme of religion and it’s most recognizable character; Jesus; alongside his apostle’s and other notable characters. Philippou’s fascination with this particular theme has stemmed from his love of the human form, design and symbolism.

All personal views aside, the artist is not trying to advocate any message or stance via religion at all in his paintings; it is merely the symbolic and creative influence that he is inspired by. A fresh and exciting perspective is what he lends to his viewers.

Philippou graduated in 2001 from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY with a BFA in Illustration.
