Tony Krysinsky is originally from New York, raised on Long Island where he began drawing and painting as a child, and never stopped. Drawn to the coast, even as a youngster, He started surfing at 13 and by the age of 18 those New York winters were too long and too cold. Florida has been his home ever since. Tony did his undergraduate work in Florida where he received his BA in fine arts and then moved to New Orleans where he got his MFA from Tulane University. The sights and sounds of the "Big Easy" would become a lasting influence in his work. Music in general has definitely been a big part of his life. Playing and singing in R&R and R&B bands while he still continued to work on his visual art. These days Tony makes his home, his art and his music in Perdido, on Florida's Gulf coast. Where he still finds time to surf and stand-up paddle board with his family. Stop by to see Tony's original works of art at Artworks Studio & Gallery at your earliest convenience.
