~Tony Curtis

Tony Curtis (1925 – 2010)
Born Bernard Schwartz in Manhattan in 1925,
he  grew up poor in the Bronx during the Great
Depression before climbing his way to the top of
Hollywood to become one of it's biggest and
most beloved stars, Tony Curtis.

He has been sketching, painting, and constructing
beautiful assemblages for almost five decades.  
Each film locale and co-star has provided him
with new inspiration for his art work.
His paintings address a broad range of subjects,
with lush, pattern-filled, multi-colored still lifes,
a personal favorite of the artist.

Tony Curtis was a great actor. I've always loved him. I didn´t know about his paintings.
