About the Artist
Antonious Peros is a native-born Washingtonian. He started his art education at the Corcoran School of Art in 1972. He also studied drawing and painting at George Washington University and the Art Students’ League of New York. He studied visual communications at the Maryland School of Art and Design (now the Maryland College of Art), graduating in 1976.
Tony, as his friends call him, has studied with many known artists, such as Arthur Smith, Frank Wright at George Washington University, and Gustaw Rayburger at the Students’ Art League of New York. He has exhibited his art work exclusively in the Washington metropolitan area.
Tony worked as a graphic designer for many years with the Federal government; Washington, DC, government; private industry; and as a free-lance artist and illustrator.
Tony’s favorite media are acrylic, pastels, and conté crayon. He has always been interested in drawing. “I believe any art work, if it is going to succeed, has to have a good knowledge of drawing behind it. Every artist should have a good solid drawing background.”
