Tony Dunn

(November 11, 1959 - January 17, 2017)

The constant and calm Tony Dunn was esteemed for his beautiful and complex, dimensional compositions that are reminiscent of early Mondrian and eccentric grids/maps/city layouts. Dunn’s greatest quality was his versatility. Hand him acrylic paint, graphite, oil pastels, watercolors, ink, polycrylic, china marker, paint pen…and he would produce something layered, colorful, and eloquent. He has shown in several locations in solo and group shows including Institute 193 in Lexington, KY.
