Toni Sanchez was born in Valencia, Spain. He studied at the Faculty of Law of the University of Valencia for three years, but in a radical move, he decided to pursue his dream of becoming an artist and moved on to The School of Arts and Crafts to study graphic design. His work has been informed by the time he spent in the United States, poring over American culture, studying very closely the rock and roll lifestyle of the 50’s and 60’s, the lifestyles of the various pop artists the movement generated, and the paintings they produced. He furthered his study of the Pop Art genre wherever his travels took him, finally fleshing out for him the style in which he works today.
Toni seized the opportunity to paint using Ben-Day dots to create brilliant works satisfying his perfectionist leanings.
He brings an original vision to this classic technique creating works featuring pop icons, imagined scenes of human interaction often with a sense of humor and always with passion. Toni exhibits around the world, his work is currently on display in galleries such as M1 Fine Art in London and DTR Modern Galleries, New York.
