Artist Anthony Montanino discovers sometimes unlikely subjects from his daily activities — walking, bike riding, and playing in a band. His paintings are noted for their bold colors and light and shadow. His bright urban scenes and landscapes are often void of human form but contain human evidence — a lone boat on the river, a glimmer of sun or street light on the edge of an alley dumpster.
Montanino paints nearly every day either in the field or in his Sacramento studio. He recently finished a private commission of 150 small paintings of Hawaii. Domestic and international collectors include hospitals, hotels, civic buildings and celebrities. A common denominator is that his collectors usually own multiple “Montaninos”. He has received awards from Sacramento Contemporary Arts, Sacramento Fine Arts Center, California State Fair, Yolo Arts Commission, and Robison-Witt Memorial Fellowship.
