Tony Seker (Painting)

Artist bio/statement:

Tony Seker is a multicultural artist, originally from Beirut, Lebanon. His abstract painting style largely stems from his childhood refugee experience. After fleeing the Lebanese Civil War in 1975 he abruptly dispensed of the camouflage colors used on his model warplanes and, in protest, began to apply bold & colorful paint. In retrospect, the familiar medium became a comfortable way to counter his despair and to positively express anti-war sentiment. Today his art continues to express aspects of his past with the consciousness of the present and the hope for a more peaceful future.

Seker approaches painting much like a writer records his/her thoughts in a journal. However the “action” behind his abstract methods truly reflects his personality and emotions, leaving a story of sorts with scant need for words. While there may be elements of his work which invoke comparisons in style to well known artists such as Gerhard Richter or Jackson Pollock, Seker's most impactful influences actually came from outside of the art world. Most notably, the random and over-exaggerated movements of his favorite physical comedians/performers (such as Peter Sellers & Victor Borge) inspired Tony’s “action” techniques. 

Seker has won multiple juried awards, including "Artist Choice Award" as voted by 52 tri-state artists in NY, NJ and CT for EYE OF THE TIGER, Best In Show for “KARMA” and “BAZOOKA JOE” and others. In 2018, Seker was the lead artist at Fort Lee Fashion Week where his art was featured. He led a team of artists who together produced a 40 by 11 foot street-art style mural as the fashion show’s backdrop & catwalk’s centerpiece. He has been the VP of the Fort Lee Artist Guild since 2017. Seker’s work can regularly be found at The Piermont Flywheel Gallery (NY), Art Works Fine Art Gallery (UT), at exhibits in the NYC metro area and soon in Miami, FL. He has exhibited at numerous venues including in SOHO, Hoboken, Brooklyn, Santa Fe NM &. His collectors span the U.S., Europe and the Middle East.
