About Tony Pro

Tony Pro was born in Northridge, California in 1973. He grew up in Southern California under the guidance of his father, Julio Pro, a successful southwest wildlife painter. Pro received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design from California State University, Northridge while simultaneously studying drawing with famed illustrator, Glen Orbik. It was at this time that he learned the value of academic figure drawing and the importance of applying these strict study principles to his craft. With this methodology, Tony became an exemplary, self-trained painter. Pro embraces romanticism in painting which places the feelings of the artist above all. Whether it be through his figures, portraits, still-life or landscapes, he paints life seen through his own eyes. In 2005, juror, Daniel Gerhartz, awarded the highly coveted Best in Show Award at the 14th Annual Oil Painters of America Show to Pro. He has also won many finalists Awards of Honor from the Portrait Society of America Show. He is a Signature Member of the prestigious California Art Club as well as an honorary member of ACOPAL. He is a founding member of the Novorealism Movement. Pro’s works hang in museums and private collections around the world. Currently, he works out of his studio at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California, where he is a resident professor of art.
