Piece description from the artist

This social commentary piece uses an animal to echo what we as humans experience as well. Working through hardship and coming out triumphant is a constant undercurrent in many of my paintings.

I take elements I’ve drawn, sculpted or photographed and scan them into the computer. Once in the computer, I bring them all together and merge them into one cohesive image. They are then printed with fully archival materials, mounted on board and then finished in oils. What makes my work truly unique is I make the artwork to fit the frames instead of vice versa.

This original painting comes framed in an gold vintage roman style frame.

About Anthony Granato

Gainesville, FL

Anthony Granato has self-diagnosed ‘Art ADD.’ He describes it as an intense love for all art; painting, photography, drawing, print-making, sculpting and digital graphics. He would call his own work mixed media, though he truly considers himself a painter.

Granato is a Utah native and attended Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR, earning a BFA in Illustration with a split minor in Graphic Design and Painting. He says his 'Art ADD' began at the age of 5, when his childhood doodling was influenced by lessons in perspective from his father. Dichotomies are especially important to the foundation of Anthony's work, with old and new, beautiful and ugly or good and evil all being fused physically and conceptually into the pieces.

Anthony’s work has been featured in "In This Week Magazine":, "The City Weekly Magazine":, and the "Salt Lake City Tribune":
