Fierce Expression - The Work Of Tony Calzetta

Country Available: Canada, USA

This documentary presents the fiercely original work of artist Tony Calzetta. Studio sequences with Calzetta painting and working with master print maker Dieter Grund engage the viewer in the process of making art. In a series of candid interviews, Tony discusses how the struggle to be true to yourself in art and in life is at the core of his darkly humourous aesthetic.

The funky original music score drives a lively visual mélange which includes animations of Tony’s titillating titles, scores of paintings and drawings, insights from curators, art critics and fans, and archival photographs of the Bloor Street Diner project.

Wickedly funny, optimistic, and challenging - the work of Tony Calzetta.
