About Tony Lavall
Tony Lavall is the quintessential artist, who is esteemed as a very spiritual person, who often times reflects on the past, the present and imagines the future. He is centered on the ideas of strong morals and values passed down to him by his father. His jovial disposition is often broken by social injustices and the depravity of mans dual nature. Tony’s deep understanding, of the complexities of life and interdependencies of human relations (God to man, man to God, man to man, and man to mankind) has colored his creativity, to create images that challenge his viewers as well as himself to evaluate their very nature.
The distorted figures are far more than a demonstration of the artist’s skills but also represent a commentary on the distorted views of society’s moral, values and interpersonal relationships. A Tony Lavall challenges the viewer to take closer look, to discover its symbolism which often depicts situations that are recognizable in the viewers own life, or in the life of someone they know. Tony Lavall’s work can best be described as universal concepts that are layered amid introspective points of view.
Tony is enamored by the mental chess game each painting brings about in each of his viewers. A matching of wits so to speak, acknowledging the thinkers and the art lovers while enjoying their interpretations and commentaries on his art work.
As a creative artist, Tony Lavall adds value to our lives by painting, paintings that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye while asking the questions that encourage the viewer, to think and open dialogues, to discuss subjects that are often withheld in everyday conversations.
Tony’s art work has been displayed in museums and galleries all over Southern California. To view his most recent works please visit his website at Tonylavallart.com
