Anthony Freda is a painter, illustrator and information warrior. His work has been published in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Time, The New Yorker, Esquire, and Business Week. He was trained at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute and Tyler Art School in Rome, Italy, and currently resides in Mount Sinai, New York.
Anthony’s paintings are an amalgamation of vintage found-objects, such as scraps taken from antique rulers, aging books, bits of metal, old barn wood, and forgotten souvenirs combined with detailed drawings and paintings that may be a mix of handwork with some computer manipulation. Most of his works include an element of social commentary, tackling issues such as American politics, war and consumerism. Anthony tweets as @FredatheArt.
