Tony Cepukas , a self-taught retiree of ten years, is a St. Catharines based emerging artist working primarily with ceramics in mosaics and mixed-media creations. In the past several years he has had two solo shows at the "Denis Tourbin Gallery" at the Niagara Art Centre (NAC) in St. Catharines and has been involved in several group shows in St. Catharines and in Kingston where he previously lived five years ago.
Inspiration for his work comes from his love of music, celebrity, shapes and anything vibrant. In the exploration of figure, he is engaged to deconstruct what celebrity is and to reconstruct it in his own vision. The process is one of design followed by ceramic breaking, nipping, orientation of pieces, gluing, grouting and epoxying with serendipitous deviations in the evolution of the piece.
"This past year I established a site on Fine Art America (FAA) which is also a work in progress as I will have more of my artwork professionally photographed".
