Tony Calzetta: SOPHISTICATED SCRIBBLES AND STORIES, GRIM AND GRIN

"My work is about drawing. The drawing is about images that are composed of shapes and forms constantly evolving from a highly personal visual vocabulary which started with subconscious doodling and automatic drawing and later from more conscience visual influences. My work can be viewed as “abstract funnies” or “surreal cartoons” which fit somewhere between high art and popular culture. Visually ambiguous to perspective and composition as a result of total disinterest to formal rules. My interest is with image as image and I believe in letting the viewer interpret and create his or her own narrative." Tony Calzetta 2018
