Anthony Romagnano

Anthony Romagnano works predominantly in pencil, paint and digital media, often referencing source material from popular culture or old fairytale illustrations. He meticulously examines and interprets an image before drawing in the outline of an image, then adding blocks of vivid colour. In combination, his compositions present much like a mosaic or stained glass window, except that they are applied in opaque layers of pencil, paint or digital rendering. Anthony Romagnano (born in 1985) has been attending the Arts Project Australia studio since 2004, and had his first solo exhibition in the Arts Project gallery in 2008. He has been exhibited in numerous group shows including ‘Small Universe’, No Vacancy Gallery, Melbourne; ‘Renegades: Outsider Art’, KickArts Contemporary Arts, Cairns QLD; and ‘Melbourne Art Fair’, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne.
