About The Artist
Tonyp is an American artist, born and raised in Detroit. He has exhibited his work in two one man shows and over 10 joint shows.
He was introduced to the Downtown Detroit underground art scene by artists Rico Africa and Ziam Penn.
He stated, when he first created his images, he created them for himself. It took a while to share them; they were so personal to him. Also he stated, long as he could remember, he’s always been creative.
He still remembers the smell of those wonderfully, huge Crayola Crayons in kindergarten. He was drawing superheros although his preteen years and at 14, his father bought him a darkroom set; he was addicted to photography eve ar since.
His love for painting and digital technology gave him other tools to express what he couldn’t express with words. The mid 90’s caused something to burst inside him. He had the need to do something original, he started creating his collections by combining the three mediums.
His work was published in a UK art book. His work is thought provoking and relatable and has been his therapist for decades. So join him in his journey of art expression.
About The Art
I work in several mediums, photography, painting and digital technology. My art originates from life experiences and doesn’t focus on a singular subject. Instead, it opens conversations on human experiences, political views, mortality and some pieces are just fun. My art is both static and dynamic. It’s gender fluid and the vibrant colors contradicts the image’s real story. To me, the most important thing is that the viewer dives in and examines the depth of the image and appreciates how the three mediums harmonize.

"His images are haunting...powerful. He captures a window into the soul.
"I haven't seen the human experience captured in such an authentic way. Your bold exposures and titles examine the “self” with empathy and determination."
