Tony Toscani lives and works in Brooklyn. He’s a contemporary figurative painter whose compositions reference work by master painters: Picasso, Léger, Matisse, and Botero; while his use of vibrant blues, crisp greens, and contemporary settings bring each painting into the present. Toscani’s work provides an intimate look at mortality and spirituality while poetically expressing scenes of everyday life. His figures draw us in to contemplate a scene whose narrative is at once familiar but also eludes us. Toscani received his MFA from The School of Visual Arts in New York City.
