Tony Sobota is a Nashville based painter obsessed with the effects of color, movement, and structure. Since 2016 he has closely followed Nashville’s frantically changing real estate landscape, forming his interests into an ongoing series of observational studies and architectural abstractions. Mostly self-taught, his Art of Construction series helped him win top honors as a part of the Nashville Arts and Business Council’s Periscope class of 2017. He has been awarded several grants for public projects in the Nashville area such as his 2019 “Little Kurdistan Community Mural”, featured on NPR. Exhibiting at multiple gallery shows in the region his work “5th+Broad” was also chosen for Artfields 2021, one of the largest art shows in the South. Most recently his paintings appeared on the larger than life Nashville Sign, and can be found in the collections of Metro Nashville, Graduate Hotels, and Chartwell Hospitality, among others.
