Tony Michale Estrada - Multi-disciplinary Artist

Tony Michale Estrada, a queer multi-disciplinary artist from Montgomery, Alabama, moved to New York City in February 1999 to create a life where he could express himself fully, freely, and safely.  From September 1999 to March 2001 he attended the University of Washington's Professional Actor's Training Program where he produced his first monologue, Bronx-bound Train. He wanted to be more than just an actor, so he returned to New York and wrote an unpublished novel based on his monologue.  In 2012 Tony began figurative clay sculpture classes at the Art Students League while also building a career as an adult learning and development specialist.  He had his first visual art exhibition during Art Basel Miami December 2018.  Something urged him to be more than just a visual artist, so Tony began his final transformation into a fully formed multi-disciplinary artist, blending large scale mixed media works, writing, installation, performance, and adult learning.  His first public art installation and performance debuted in November 2019 at the Hudson Guild Theater in New York City, It was selected as one of ARTnews’s Editor’s Picks that week.  He is also a learning and development specialist at Columbia University.
