Anthony De Angelo was raised in NJ. Some of his earliest memories were watching the Assassination and burial of JFK on TV, the riots of the late Sixties, as well as the first man on the Moon. Some of his artistic influences are, Allen Ginsberg, Lewis Carroll, and Henri Matisse. "The world in which I am portraying artistically is indicative of a strange place full of Illusions that represent things which are too often frighteningly real." He is a painter who derives inspiration primarily from the visceral effects of events happening around him, but hopes viewers of his artwork will find the meaning through his misrepresentations of reality.
