Tony Furtado Interview with Music and Ceramics

In the 21 minute interview below, Grey Raven Gallery featured artist for September 2023 Tony Furtado discusses the process of his artwork and how his mindset about art and music meshes his love for both. His goal in art is to create socially relevant statements that often generate further discussion about the state of animals in our world. Recent works include “Disappering” and “Hollowed” which call attention to the plight of Rhinoceroses and Elephants in the wild. The first video is a snapshot to whet your appetite; the full video is below.

In this complete video, Tony explains his thought process while working on a whale sculpture and also plays music on guitar and banjo that he is much better known for.
