Anthony Campuzano

b. 1975, Philadelphia, PA; lives and works Philadelphia, PA

Available Works

Anthony Campuzano is known for his use of found language in his drawings, taking text from such sources as newspaper headlines, Wikipedia entries, song lyrics, even notes from his mother in which he replicates her meticulous cursive. He views drawing as an outlet for fandom, exuberant sharing, storytelling, and homage. For Campuzano, homage is democratic and wide-ranging. Drawings are composed around an assortment of people, famous and anonymous: from 1960s actresses such as Rita Tushingham to the early 20th century Cubist artist George Braque to a child of artistic promise whom Campuzano taught during a summer camp art program. Campuzano’s experience of working in a newsstand as a teenager enveloped by the glut of images and words featured on magazine covers and tabloids had a profound influence on him and continues to impact his art in the present. Book covers, record albums, and film advertising—the graphic design of popular culture—similarly filter into Campuzano’s practice. 


His work has been exhibited widely including solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, Philadelphia; White Columns and Churner & Churner (both in New York). He has been included in group exbitions at venues including FLAG Art Foundation, Jack Shainman Gallery, and Salon 94 (all in New York); Fleisher/Ollman, Elkins Gallery at Tyler School of Art, and the Free Library (all in Philadelphia); Atlanta Contemporary, GA; ICA Maine College of Art, Portland; and Good Weather, Little Rock, AR, among others. Campuzano received his BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, and is a 2009 recipient of the Pew Fellowship in the Arts.

Gallery artist Anthony Campuzano is included in:

Drawn to Disaster
Institute of Contemporary Art, Maine College of Art
522 Congress Street
Portland, Maine 04101
June 22 – Sunday, August 7, 2011

In this age of the 24-hour news cycle the media bombards us with sensationalist imperatives, looking towards the next storyline, ignoring the vulnerability of those left behind when journalists leave. In this exhibition artists examine the ephemerality of news reports and conjure the complexities of disorder, anger, and optimism that can follow disaster.

Featuring work by: Anthony Campuzano, Dave McKenzie, Christian Holstad, Carlos Motta, Sun Xun, Dominic McGill, Stacy Howe, Deb Sokolow, Yael Bartana, Daniel Guzmán, and Lisi Raskin.

Summer Studio with Anthony Campuzano at the ICA, Philadelphia

This July, Anthony Campuzano will transform ICA's second floor gallery into a free form art school and working artists' studio, both free and open to the public. Campuzano has invited peers (including gallery artists and friends Kate Abercrombie and Jack Sloss), mentors, professors and other special guests to provide art instruction in various media, discuss past and current projects, screen favorite videos and films, and contribute work on view throughout the month. Grounding this program is a series of re-staged lessons that Campuzano found formative in his development as a young artist. Classes start July 1. The full schedule is available here.

Ann Landi, of ARTnews, wrote about Campuzano's upcoming project in the magazine's
June issue.

Anthony Campuzano in Read-Only-Memory

Organized by Stamatina Gregory

January 8 - February 13, 2010
Opens January 8 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Read-Only-Memory brings together works by Anthony Campuzano, Graham Dolphin, and Molly Larkey, all of which incorporate acts of analogue transcription. Characterized by the meticulous, almost devotional labor of recreating found, journalistic, pop, or literary texts, these works stand as extreme acts of obsolete protocol, investigating the lapses of time and information between reading, writing, and reception.

Independent curator Stamatina Gregory recently completed the Whitney Lauder Curatorial Fellowship at the ICA in Philadelphia and curated a large group exhibition of contemporary photography at the FLAGArt Foundation. She is also a doctoral candidate at The Graduate Center at the City University of New York.

Anthony Campuzano at the ICA (Philadelphia)

Touch Sensitive is Anthony Campuzano's first major museum outing. Touch Sensitive is an apt name for what promises to be an informative and engaging exhibition of new and select drawings, products of the artists intense collecting, scrutinizing, distillation of news, personal notes, history, obituaries, and popular culture. Anthony's ability to make meaningful connections between disparate things and to generate a significant personal resonance between the viewer and his many famous and not so famous subjects, nears a place of sweet perfection. Simultaneously, the artist makes you feel anonymous, famous, important, young, old, fragile and invincible. Do see the show.
