Tony Janello

Tony Janello is obsessed with the human face, its endless variations and its extraordinary capacity for expression. He began his artistic practice painting portraits and eventually began creating three-dimensional sculptures and digital photographs depicting faces that appear structurally unsound as if in the early stages of implosion. Janello began teaching in RISD’s Continuing Education division and moved into the Illustration department in the early 1980s.
