Realist Painter: Tony Curanaj

A realist artist is an artist whose style is characterized by the representation of people or things as they actually are. Tony Curanaj is a realist painter known best for his still lifes, figure studies, and trompe l’oeil scenes. He first gained recognition for his graffiti writing under the tag SUB, and later worked for Disney as a designer and painter. However, Tony says that his focus was always “classical painting”. His style emphasizes ideas of academic painting and is characterized by photo-realistic detail, strong studio lighting, and subjects that range from birds and insects to traditional memento mori.
