Tony Tasset

Conceptual Artist

With tongue firmly planted in cheek at times, conceptual artist Tony Tasset’s motto might well be, “Go big or go home.” Trained as a painter, his prolific output now includes video, photography, bronze, wax, film, and even taxidermy. Over the past decade, his public art has attracted increasing interest from both cities and corporations.

“I’m not interested in decorating a space with my art. I want to make art that interacts with people and is a force to be reckoned with.”
