Tony Griffin is one of North Carolina’s most accomplished painters. His work is breathtaking in its beauty and simplicity and demonstrates the strong personal connection he feels for the North Carolina mountain landscape. “His landscapes, which are often done ‘en plein air’ (on location) are tranquil, thoughtful and poetic, as if stumbled on by the viewer for the very first time,” said Jane Grau of the Visual Arts Critic.
Griffin has built a strong reputation as both a plein-air landscape painter and portrait artist of note. Even though his style has loosened with time and experience, the strong classical training still forms a foundation of all of his creations.
