" Tony Viscardi "
Tony Viscardi is a self-taught sculptor who specializes in creating intricate and captivating works of art from brushed aluminum.
He is recognized as one of the most talented fine artists in the country and has been featured on
national television shows such as HGTV's THAT'S CLEVER. Known as the "RockStar of the Art World", Viscardi's work is highly sought after by collectors, including celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kat Von D.
In addition to his artistic talent, Viscardi is also dedicated to raising money for cancer charities in memory of his mother.
He regularly donates pieces to local charities for their events and auctions.
Viscardi's imaginative works are created using industrial machinery, such as plasma cutters, jigsaws, grinders, and sanding discs.
He incorporates neon lights into some of his sculptures,
giving them a glowing beauty. His unique approach to art has earned him a reputation as one of the most influential metal artists of our time.
Despite his success, Viscardi remains humble, remembering his humble beginnings as a self-taught artist working out of his garage.
He is passionate about sharing his art with collectors across the country, and is grateful
for the opportunity to see the world through his commissions. To Viscardi, the greatest success is seeing others enjoy his original works.
My mediums of brushed aluminum and neon come from a lifelong fascination with interchanging lights and the love of Art Deco design. My sculptures evolve from a desire to see layers and shapes incorporated into my passion for contemporary design. Along the way in my artist career I have adapted other mediums into my primary focus of aluminum and neon. Glass, fabric, mirrors, water, and Plexiglas are a few that I have enjoyed creating with. I continue to "play" with other forms and incorporate them into my creations.
Each piece is created daily with an artistic approach. The machinery I use is often viewed and industrial and lifeless. Using a plasma cutter, jigsaw, grinders and sanding discs are often what companies, factories and industries use. Creating art with these devices is a fascinating way to spend my days. I enjoy seeing my various sanding techniques cause the metal to "come to life". Neon incorporated into some of these pieces gives each work a glowing beauty. Some are subtle with backlit colors shining through while others are stark and vibrant. My clients who collect my art pieces are fascinated with the creation as they are often viewed as "jewelry for the wall".
I began my art career years ago splattering paints on canvas. I found metal to be fascinating while exploring different mediums and became amazed that such an industrial form could be transformed into a work of art. Metal becoming contemporary art that designers incorporate into residences and businesses is a reality I enjoy each day. America is made of entrepreneurs who had a dream. Being a self-taught artist who began in my garage and created my way into a studio allowed me to leave my factory career of 10 years during 2003. Creating artwork is my career and my passion. Traveling to art shows across the country allows me to share a piece of my world with collectors. When others enjoy my work that creates my success.
