About the artist                        CV                        Exhibition History

Over the past 35 years Tony Calzetta has developed a distinctive visual language of bold, simplified forms where colour, texture and lines jump into a third dimension and dance to life to create works that challenge the viewer’s imagination.

Tony Calzetta received his B.F.A. from the University of Windsor and his M.F.A. from York University. He works mainly on canvas and paper and at times in sculpture and printmaking. He has published three major livres d’artiste, Acts of Kindness and of Love in collaboration with writer John Metcalf, and more recently How God Talks in His Sleep and Other Fabulous Fictions and Peculiar Practices with writer Leon Rooke. In addition to commissioned works he is represented in public, corporate and private collections in Canada, the U.S. and Europe. In 2011, his paintings exhibited at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Toronto were part of the Padiglione Italia at the 54 th International Venice Biennale. He was elected as a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RCA) in 2004.
