“I want to be deliberate, fresh and spontaneous in my approach to painting – to convey that unspoken energy into every piece of artwork – telling my story and letting the viewer write the words.”
Anthony Salvo has lived in Southern California since the age of twelve. That’s when he discovered oil painting. Always drawing and painting as a young child, he knew that art would be his vocation. He attended Art Center College of Design and graduated with honors, receiving a BFA in Graphic Design and Packaging. Changing paths to fine art after 25 years directing his own Newport Beach design firm, his award-winning paintings are now in collections all over the country. Anthony has featured articles in Laguna Beach Art Patron Magazine, Plein Air Magazine, and “Artist to Watch” in South West Art magazine.
Anthony combines the color sense, composition and esthetic qualities acquired from years of design experience into his newly found love of painting “en plein air.” Plein Air painting has given Anthony the enthusiasm to spend much more time, thought and consideration on the ordinary beautiful day or object that life puts in front of him — and passionately portray them on canvas.
He is a Laguna Plein Air Painters Association Signature Member, California Art Club Artist Member, and Orange County CAC Chapter Chairman, Represented by Studio 2817, Anthony Salvo Fine Art – Gallery, in Newport Beach and Studio 7 Gallery, in Laguna Beach.
