About the artist

“Passionate”, “brilliantly colorful”, “soothing”, “joyful”

These are just some of the adjectives that collectors have used to define the painting of Pennsylvania born artist Tony La Salle. Using acrylic on canvas, his subjects include small stylized portraits, the three sisters, crowds of people at an event and his massive bountiful gardens.

An Artist’s Artist

Described as an “artist’s artist”, Tony La Salle characterizes his paintings as “extremely personal and reflective, the results coming from an unplanned internal journey.” His work hangs in private homes, galleries, corporations, restaurants, cafes and universities from Boston and New York on the east coast to San Francisco on the west coast as well as in Paris, Tokyo, Taipei and Lebanon.
