People are talking! Read what they are saying about Tony Nero

November 2011 - Tony Nero, a well known Peterborough artist, was one of the people I decided to connect to on Twitter and Facebook because he seemed to be out and about a lot, exhibiting and such and I thought he’d be a good person to follow and find out what’s going on. Not long after that, he contacted me through twitter asking if I’d like to exhibit at the event he was putting on for Black History Month and of course I said yes! Artist Stacey-Ann Cole, Creativesque. Read Stacey-Ann's blog, her full account on what happened next.

November 2011 - Tony Nero, whose work is so diverse it is impossible to pigeon hole, has impressed local art lovers as well as discerning audiences nationally. He has an exquisite talent for portraiture and his impressive collection of black heroes has been acclaimed locally, nationally and internationally. His skill with a paintbrush knows no bounds and this is clear to see in his beautifully executed still life paintings where he brings the beauty of nature indoors. Artist and curator René Viner.

9th October 2011 - One stall that specifically caught my eye was entitled Black Heroes – a series of original paintings by artist Tony Nero paying homage to the heroes that shape our history. I have yet to stop talking about his stunning piece portraying Bob Marley. by Tkisha George, Krystal Mag. Taken from the article Black History is alive and kicking.

Year 4 - Hampton Vale Primary school The topic this term has been learning about Aboriginal culture. They were very lucky to have a visit from local artist Tony Nero who brought in some of his original paintings in the style of "Aboriginal Dot Painting". Tony demonstrated the techniques used in a workshop day which the children thoroughly enjoyed, producing some lovely pieces to display.

July 2011 - Often times I look at artwork and it moves me or it does not. I see paintings, designs and sculptures, in ways that may irritate most people. Like does it look good on a t-shirt? However, when I went on this artist’s website and saw what he was capable of creating, I felt compelled to share it with you. After all, isn’t art inspirational? GaptoothDiva Inspiration
