About the work
Tony Curanaj
American, b. 1973
Follow

Tony Curanaj is a realist painter known best for his academic style and meticulous approach to conventional painting subjects such as still lifes, figure studies, and trompe l’oeil scenes. He first gained recognition for his graffiti writing under the tag SUB, and later worked for Disney as a designer and painter. Curanaj, however, says that his focus was always “classical painting.” Curanaj’s style emphasizes the ideals of academic painting, and is characterized by photorealistic detail, strong studio lighting, and subjects that range from birds and insects to traditional memento mori.
