About Tony Young

My finishes are inspired by graffiti and my recent travels to Europe. I took a street art tour in Shoreditch of London and that has had a profound influence on my work.

I am interested in recreating gritty textures, layering bold imagery and text, while mixing in elements of my own design work. I work in sections and use underglaze. I feel it’s the best solution giving me layered transparent effects.

My work revolves around a single word: “RIOT”. It’s a word that was tagged on a wall I photographed while traveling. It Glowed. So simple, yet so complex. What do you “RIOT” for? Family? Love? Cheesecake? Art?

When I choose a mug from my collection for coffee or a cup for a cocktail it’s special. Each of those cups have a story. They’re conversation starters. They make me reminisce. My goal is through grimy layers of graffiti, text, skulls, and ants I can translate that feeling to others. I hope people feel special when using my cups. If I can make artwork that somehow creates a link between myself and someone else or starts a conversation between two people then I feel I have succeeded as an artist.
