Mega Cities is proud to display these two works of art from Tony Seker. We believe his work is such a powerful evocation of the urban energy present in the Mega Cities Project.
Tony Seker is a multicultural artist, originally from Beirut, Lebanon. His abstract painting style largely stems from his childhood refugee experience. After fleeing the Lebanese Civil War in 1975 he abruptly dispensed of the camouflage colors used on his model warplanes and, in protest, began to apply bold & colorful paint. In retrospect, the familiar medium became a comfortable way to express his despair and anti-war sentiment. Today his art continues to express aspects of his past with the consciousness of the present and the hope for a more peaceful future.
