About Tony Ameneiro

Tony Ameneiro is an artist-printmaker who uses both drawing and printmaking to develop and extend his ideas and images. His work reveals a sense of condensed observation with references to botany and art history. In series such as LOCATION and PARK EDGE, there is often a focus on symbols of place and the layering of culture and geography. His most recent series integrated universal themes of renewal and regeneration, exploring the literal and metaphorical possibilities of the botanical term Flowering Heads
