Antony Zito, known for painting portraits on the streets of the Lower East Side, NYC. About the Artist: Hailing from the woods of Northern Connecticut, Zito has spent over 20 years on New Yorkâ€™s Lower East Side. Zito ran a gallery and portrait studio on Ludlow Street through 2006. To New Yorkers, his portraits of the local characters illustrate a sweeping line through the legendary period after the dust settled from the 80s East Village art scene. The New York Post has called his portrait paintings â€œsensualâ€ and his renderings of people on recycled materials other than canvas have prompted The Village Voice to refer to him as â€œa master of the found objectâ€. His work has been exhibited and collected throughout the US, UK, Italy, France, Spain, Belgium and Japan. Zitoâ€™s portraits and other artwork appear in Jim Jarmuschâ€™s films, â€œCoffee and Cigarettesâ€ and â€œBroken Flowersâ€.
