"Taking Out the Trash"
Cartoon Paintings by
"I never wanted to be an "artist," but I am a kind of a cartoon artist," says Tony Juliano, whose medium is acrylic on canvas. "When I was growing up there were comic books that my parents had around the house, like R. Crumb and MAD Magazine." Juliano later graduated from Paier College of Art with a B.F.A. in Illustration. "From my college days I found that the best way to learn is by "trial and error." -- They dont really teach you cartooning in art school, because its considered a lonely and isolated art form. But its not true -- cartooning a wonderful art form." Indeed, each of the colorfully playful and skillfully animated motifs in his small works embodies a unique whimsical satire of modern social interaction or some strange phenomena.
In the spirit of his cartoon themes, Twinkees, Snowballs, Cupcakes, cheese doodles and fruit juice will be served at his reception.
