Background: Anthony Armstrong was born in Sanford, Florida.
Education: He joined the United States Navy after high school and during his 18 years service had the opportunity to travel to places like Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey. He often visited museums that housed works by many of the great masters who would become major influences on his art.
Taking advantage of educational opportunities afforded him by his Navy service, Armstrong earned an Associates degree in printing management from the University of the District of Columbia and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Philadelphia University of the Arts.
Achievements: This was followed by a position as a Designer/Illustrator for NASA. Over the years he has flourished as a fine artist, using his ‘God-given gift’ and multi-media training to create bold and expressive abstract cubist works. He opened his own studio in 1994 and has since enjoyed several gallery shows and numerous awards. The artist lives in Philadelphia.
