Artist Statement
for Tony Rea
Tony ReaHi, to all fellow artists.
I was born 1941 in the city of Belfast, my father was Italian, my mother Irish.
Since a very early age I've always been interested in drawing & painting.
I have tried so many different aspects
of art, like marquetry, sculpture, carving etc. but none of these took hold
so I opted for the hand painted kind.
I've never regreted it.
I took up airbrushing way back in 1978, & I can tell you it was the most difficult tool to get used to,I nearly gave up a number of times,But I was continually inspired by other airbrush users, so I stuck at it,I'm glad I did now.
I still paint the conventional way with
oils & pastels, & use the airbrush on much bigger projects, like Fairground rides. I am retired now & enjoy...
