Tony WHINCUP, Commute between Las Vegas, and Calgary. Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement True original art is a culmination of a persons entire life experiences, hobbies, passions, sense of humour, likes, dislikes, prejudices, and idiosynchrsys wound up into a tight ball, and when that ball explodes, it results in a jolt of energy passing through your arm, to the brush, and onto the canvas. - TRUE ORIGINAL ART is created by slicing off the top of your head, leaning over, and pouring out your mind, heart and soul onto the canvas. TRUE ORIGINAL ART is subjective, it is neither good, nor bad... it just is. I have been painting for 30 years. Have built up an extremely large impressive portfolio. - have been displayed in galleries across the World, including many in US and Canada. - Will offer these as limited editions, limited to 3,000 prints each piece. Will send a signed, numbered certificate upon purchase of any of my prints. I am adamant that I will not offer regular edition prints or posters of any of my work. Have even stated that in my will, upon my death, that my estate do not issue regular editions, or posters. - Current studio is in penthouse apartment of 44 storey building on the Las Vegas strip. I continue to create a large volume of work out of this studio, as well as the studio at my estate in Calgary. - Have been married to a wonderful woman for the past 20 years, with 2 ( almost ) adult sons. My family is my main inspiration, and motivation. - My creative inspirations are Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Picasso, Botero, Dali, Micheal Godard.
