Tony Windberg was born in Melbourne in 1966. He resides and works in Northcliffe, in the South West region of WA. Graduating from Curtin University in 1986 (Bachelor of Arts, Fine Arts, major: Painting), Windberg has won numerous art awards, held several solo exhibitions and has been selected to exhibit in significant state and national group exhibitions. He is represented widely in public, corporate and private art collections. Windberg combines a variety of artforms, materials and techniques. These range from the conventional to the unconventional. He sources materials from his surrounds such as ash, charcoals and resins, all of which are used with symbolic intent. He also uses pertinent synthetic ‘domestic’ surfaces such as paint sample cards, shade-cloth, insect mesh and vinyl flooring.
