Tony Gangitano Biography
Born -- Brooklyn NY Lives -- San Diego CA Tony received a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture, with a minor in Art, from the University of Georgia and returned to work in New York City. He moved to San Diego CA to study art and launched a program of independent study/travel in many countries. This led Tony to Italy, where he lived and worked as a sculptor for two years. He interned in ceramic and bronze with sculptor Alberto Ricci in Rome, then did internships and independent study of stone carving at Studio Sem and bronze casting at Tommasi Foundry, both in Pietra Santa, Italy. Upon returning
to California, he pursued a Masters of Fine Art at SDSU. There the love of carving stone and casting bronze took a back seat to less traditional materials, which he incorporated into more conceptual sculptures and site-specific installations. Tony’s work was exhibited in group shows, two-person shows, and featured artist shows until the year 2000, when he took a hiatus from sculpture and focused on environmental landscape architecture design projects. In 2015, he re-emerged as
a well-seasoned, creative, high energy, conceptually oriented mixed media sculptor. His current work is fresh and exciting, incorporating thoughtful concepts and new materials.
Dedicated to true expression through the arts.
