Anthony Deon is a painter living in Omaha, Nebraska. Deon paints surrealistic imagery in acrylic on canvas. The canvas space is predominantly occupied by an array of colorful subjects demonstrating his ability to design with simple but intense palettes. On completion of his paintings the images are adorned with ornate frames gilded by his own hands. Deon is a self-taught artist pushing through the limitations of that label, making opportunities for himself all along the way.
"My approach as a self-taught artist is to create imagery highlighting silhouettes and color schemes paired to compose a world that makes me happy to be alive. Using my abilities as a painter to focus my imagination and transform a canvas into a world that I’ve created and put above everything else. A space where the natural world and accentuated colors makes every moment of life worth it. Acrylics as my medium, helps me execute this with speed and efficiency." -Anthony Deon
