Anthony Samaniego is an American visual artist born and raised in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from Cal State University of Northridge with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Economics, he worked in the entertainment industry as an analyst for Warner Brothers. Hereafter, Anthony’s path in life dramatically changed due to an accident, which required him to relearn how to walk. During his convalescence, he became interested in photography and pursued a self-taught regime to enhance his knowledge and understanding of photographic methods and post-production editing. His early photographic subjects included the Los Angeles skyline and nature captured in the hills near his home. Enamored by film photography and seeking to share his creativity consistently on social media, Anthony became a sought after artist and cinemagraph pioneer. After reaching the acclaim of a professional photographer, Anthony shifted his talents toward 3D art. Using innovations and techniques learned from photography, Anthony’s current work reinterprets similar subjects within 3D visualizations. These methods aim to encapsulate real world inanimate objects and interpret them into flowing memoirs of the digital space. Inspired by impressionism and surrealism, Anthony reimagines the setting, scale, and explores the perception of ethereal beauty. His work has been exhibited internationally via SCOPE Art Show (Miami, 2022), Bangkok Art Biennale(2022-2023), Bideotikan(Bilbao, Spain, 2022),The Space between Us(Times Square and Samsung Center, New York City, 2022), Neo Shibuya(Tokyo, Japan, 2022), Miami LIGHT exhibition(Miami, 2021), Callo City Arts Festival(Madrid, Spain, 2020). Anthony Samaniego resides and creates in Los Angeles, California.
