Kim Mikinis & Tony "Baloney" Juliano

 
 

 
 
 


"I sculpt paper," says KIM MIKINIS. "I collage. I paint. I sew fabric plushies. I make animations, inspired by travels abroad, vaudeville, circus, bicycles, and animals. Using miniature figurines, fabric sculpted monsters and monkeys, old-west railroad train set scenery, painted backgrounds from my puppet show sets and a St. Jude paper cutter, my animations are created. No dialogue ensues as the positioning and interactions of the figures do the talking."

 TONY "BALONEY" JULIANO, an award-winning satirist artist, is not your normal painter. With his wacky, single panel, lush, comic-like paintings dealing with quick puns, whimsical sayings, ironic sadness, and his penchant for parodying other famous artists, Tony makes art laughable in colorful complementary painted frames.

Tony graduated from Paier College of Art with a BFA in Illustration in 1998 and has been a successful free-lance artist from 1997 to the present. Being teased by his classmates, he created a childish made-up nickname: "Agoo." Tony's art openings come with a following of fans who come as chickens, purple cows, robots, dragons, accordion players, sumo wrestlers, Santa Claus and The CT Roller Girls serving drinks on their roller skates.

Tony has done commissioned murals for Corona Beer and The Peabody Museum, art instruction, back drops, and set design. He has been included in umpteen group shows, and has had solo exhibits at the York Square Gallery in 2001, the Chapel
Square Gallery and the Margaret L. MacDonough Gallery in New Haven in 2002, Kohn-Joseloff Gallery in Cheshire, the Hygienic Art Center in New London, and Europa Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
