    Biography

     

    Tony D'Amico defines his mission simply as follows: "Capture scenes of everyday life that are often overlooked."
      
    Beginning employment as a commercial artist/illustrator, Tony enjoyed a successful career in the corporate world working for such companies as PepsiCo, Playtex and American Home Products. He later founded his own promotional marketing agency, Creative Alliance based in Southport CT. The client roster included, The Pepsi-Cola Company, AT&T, Tiffany & Company, ebay and the Guinness Importing Company. Evolving into one of the top promotion and event marketing agencies in the US, he later sold the company to the Publicis Group, an international advertising and media services conglomerate. 
     
    Channeling his creativity into a full time career as a fine artist, Tony has studied with a number of nationally recognized artists such as Donald Demers, Matt Smith, Joseph McGurl, Ray Roberts and Phil Starke. The diverse subject matter of his work is most often fueled by his plein air experiences along the east coast.  He has won many awards for his work including an Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Exhibition, 2nd Prize at the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society International Online Competition and the FASO Bold Brush Award. He is a signature member of the The American Impressionist Society, as well as a member of the Salmagundi Club NY, Oil Painters of America, National Oil Painters & Acrylics Society, and Plein Air Painters of the Southeast.
