August 2022 Feature: Tony Segale
About the Artist:
Tony Segale’s artistic endeavors started in childhood, doodling ideas and images both fitting and unsuitable, and cartooning for the school newspaper. Primarily self taught, he began hand lettering signs and pictorials as a side gig during his first career in the retail meat trade. Switching to a new endeavor as a full time commercial artist, Tony specializes in reverse glass gold leaf and large format murals, with watercolors being utilized in the creation of maquettes and design. Soon, he found himself expressing his own observations with a twist of what ought to be.
Tony considers himself an abstract realism painter, original interpretations created in his graphic bravado style. “Every creative action risks failure. If the risks are little, the reward is little”
Tony likes to paint plein air, or work from sketches on location then re-imagined in the studio. He teaches workshops in the study of watercolor, drawing, brush lettering and reverse glass gold leaf.
