Anthony Ross throughout his formal education years would demonstrate his artistic talents, often entering student shows and contests, culminating in the coveted Long Beach Art Association student artist grand prize award in 1978.
Over the next twenty years, Anthony continued his artistic pursuits through graphic design and art direction, working for such companies as Lawrence Advertising and Family Living Publications.
In 1996 Anthony decided to pursue a degree in art and become a fine artist. He entered the Fine Art program at California State University at Fullerton. It was there he completed his Bachelor of Fine Art undergraduate work and earned his degree in drawing and painting with high honors.
While working on his bachelors degree Anthony was busy as a founding member of Legacy Arts, a co-op studio/gallery, located in the new (at the time) Artists Village, in Santa Ana, California.
After graduating Anthony moved his studio from his studio/garage at home to a new studio in the historic Santora Building of the Arts, in the Artists Village. In 2004 Anthony outgrew the Santora Studio and moved to larger facilities in Anaheim Hills where he continues his “Road/Sign” series.
In 2004 Anthony created an offshoot of his “Road/Signs” called “FantaSigns, Your Name in Art.” These art prints take after his retro-realists paintings using his design capabilities to create a new and unique art prints that can be personalized. The Disney Corporation saw the FantaSign prints and partnered with Anthony to create “Disney FantaSigns” available exclusively on disneyshopping.com. Anthony continues with the Disney line in 2008 with the “Hannah Montana” and “High School Musical” FantaSigns.
His work is on display daily at his studio/gallery as well at various galleries and art festivals across the country.
