Tony Curanaj featured in George Lucas’ book “Visions”


Tony Curanaj was recently selected by George Lucas to be included in "Visions" a book featuring newly created works based on the theme of Star Wars.

Curanaj's contribution, "A Good Find: Portrait of a Tusken Raider" was included in this review by Wired

Here is what Curanaj had to say about his painting:
"The inspiration behind 'A Good Find: Portrait of a Tusken Raider' is in what the sand people of Tatooine must do to survive the harsh and desolate desert climate," says New York painter Tony Curanaj. "Stylistically, I looked toward the 19th-century Orientalist painters for their meticulous and beautifully designed images of life in the desert. I was able to find a great Tusken raider costume and model robot, which enabled me to paint from life as well as from imagination."

Curanaj will have new works on exhibit with Joshua Liner Gallery at the Scope art fair in Miami this December, showing alongside gallery artists Ian Francis and Kris Kuksi.
