Toni studied painting at the Philadelphia College of Art, graphic design
and silkscreen printing at the School of Visual Arts. A Manhattan-based
artist and graphic designer, Toni's work is represented in museums, private
and corporate collections.
Toni's aerial-view paintings represent diverse places and spaces of the contemporary landscape seen from an above ground perspective. The flattened surface planes convey the textures of abstract space enhanced by compositional aesthetics and skillful use of color. From the elevated position of high-rise buildings and helicopters, Toni's images of cities and towns, factories and farmlands, power plants, suburban communities and highways are delivered with a distinctive angle on structures frequently taken for granted.
Through the aerial vantage point one discovers a modern perspective and fresh visual vocabulary. The flattened plane reduces details to strong graphic images. Overall, Toni strives to blend a fresh perspective with a savvy demonstration of the power of color and composition.
