Tony’s use of clean lines and a muted palette echo the highrise silhouettes of the urban landscape, reflecting and abstracting the world around him. Tony’s murals can be seen adorning a broad array of walls in New York City and worldwide, from restaurants and hotels to private residences and office buildings.
