Tony Philippou was born in 1978 in Bronx, NY and still resides and creates there to this day. His intentions are to explore the reality and relationships of humans using the theme of religion and it’s most recognizable character; Jesus; alongside his apostle’s and other notable characters. Philippou’s fascination with this particular theme has stemmed from his love of the human form, design and symbolism.

All personal views aside, the artist is not trying to advocate any message or stance via religion at all in his paintings; it is merely the symbolic and creative influence that he is inspired by. A fresh and exciting perspective is what he lends to his viewers.

Philippou graduated in 2001 from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY with a BFA in Illustration.
