Karen and Tony Barone Biography

(American)

Karen and Tony Barone were both born in Chicago where they fell in love, married and established themselves as a creative force. They “got their stripes” in New York City’s Soho; then worked from a hillside studio on their horse farm in East Tennessee. They then moved to Los Angeles where they became a powerful artistic presence while working out of their massive canal-side studio in the artist community of Venice Beach. Early in the new millennium, the Barones moved their high voltage creativity to the Palm Springs California desert community of Rancho Mirage where larger-than-life public art dominated their oeuvre.

Karen and Tony possess a formidable wit and work side by side in the execution of their large-scale sculpture and paintings. They create mind-boggling works of art that challenge our sense of scale and spatial reality. They place us in an Alice-In-Wonderland state of disbelief and visual adventure. The Barones believe art can be a powerful force for good and human enrichment and they support many causes to that goal. Their amazing artwork has been exhibited and acquired by individuals, corporations, cities and museums worldwide.

 

Barone public sculpture may be seen throughout the Coachella Valley:

Palm Springs Animal Shelter (where their 7’-3” tall pink poodle & 8’-6” Blue Siamese Cat have become iconic), Historical Society of Palm Desert, Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert Rancho Mirage, Fire Station #3, Palm Springs, Terra Lago Fire Station, Indio, The Palm Springs Library, and outside the Valley at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, the EverWonder Children’s Museum, Newtown, Connecticut, and throughout the U.S.
