Nashville Sign Artist of the Week: Tony Sobota

The Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville, Blackbird Media, and F&M Bank have teamed up to present the Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign. This week, 2017 Periscope alum Tony Sobota is featured!

Tony paints in a space where both architecture and portraiture demand equal attention.  He currently uses the visual language of construction to frame his portrait of Nashville: as a work in progress.  On a scale from smaller site-specific studies to larger more conceptual pieces, Tony’s work pursues the question: do we value the process of “becoming”, or just anxiously await the removal of all the scaffolding?

Tony was recently featured in Artfields 2021! Learn more here.
