Tony Ricci is an American born artist whose work was described by Holland Cotter of the New York Arts Journal and New York Times critic as "meta-phorical, haunting, discomfortingly mysterious, and pictorially poetic."
Although essentially self taught - he studied at The Art Center School and Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. In New York, he studied at the New School of Social Research and Art Student League.
Ricci works in a robust and direct manner in many mediums - pastel, oil, acrylic, and wood assemblage. His work is in the permanent collection of the Washington County Museum in Hagerstown, MD, the Long Beach Museum of Art, CA, the University of Maine, the Fine Arts Collection of Southampton College, NY and in private collections.
Ricci has designed stage sets for La Mama Theater and created artwork for CBS and various theatrical events.
He currently resides in Bridgehampton, NY.
