Tony Michale Estrada - Mixed Media Artist

Tony Michale Estrada, 42, from Montgomery, Alabama, moved to New York City in February 1999 to create a life where he could express himself fully and freely.  He attended the University of Washington's Professional Actor's Training Program from September 1999-March 2001 where he produced his first one person show, Bronx-bound Train. He dropped out of graduate school to return to New York and figure out how to be more than just an actor.  He wrote an unpublished novel based on his one person show, and in 2012 began taking figurative clay sculpture classes at the Art Students League while also building a career as an adult learning and development specialist in a global corporation.  He had his first visual exhibition during Art Basel Miami December 2018, but wanting to be more than just a visual artist, TME began his final transformation as a fully formed multi-disciplinary artist, blending large scale mixed media paintings, writing, installation, performance, and adult learning and development.  His first public art installation and performance debuts in November at the Hudson Guild Theater in New York City.  He also works as a learning and development specialist at one of the world's leading universities. His goal is to make art accessible, transformative and magic again.
