Collection: Pro, Tony

Tony Pro was born in Northridge, California, in 1973. He grew up in Southern California under the guidance of his father, Julio Pro (1929–2013), a successful Southwest wildlife painter and his brother, Greg, a successful illustrator. Pro received his bachelor of arts degree in graphic design from California State University, Northridge, while simultaneously studying drawing with illustrator Glen Orbik. He learned the value of academic figure drawing and the importance of applying these strict principles to his craft. With this methodology, Pro became an exemplary, self-trained painter with the help of his mentors, including Richard Schmid.

Pro’s love of the Old West came from his parent’s avid Western art and Native American artifact collecting. With his parents, he toured major Western art shows and the studios of many of the artists whose work they collected. Once his father transitioned from art collecting to artist, the excursions continued and became a major inspiration to Pro’s interest in the genre.

In 2005, juror Daniel Gerhartz awarded the highly coveted Best in Show Award at the 14th Annual Oil Painters of America Show to Pro. In 2014, Pro received the first place award for best painting at the Portrait Society of America International Competition for Last Train Home. He is a Signature Member of the prestigious California Art Club.

Pro lives and works in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife Elizabeth and their four children. Pro’s works hang in museums and private collections around the world.
