Anthony Freda works on found surfaces complete with their original patina then illustrates notions of hypocrisies still around in today’s society. He uses his art to wake people out of a trance with often scathing, spot-on, sociopolitical commentary. He has been dubbed an 'equal opportunity offender'.  Blackboard Jungle, his newest show in Trifecta Gallery takes on subjects of liberty and human gullabilities.

 

  "I’m just an artist trying to make sense of the world,  using my art as a vehicle to channel the passion I feel about the injustice I see everywhere."

The Trends Journal publishes a weekly political cartoon series aptly titled 'The Weekly Freda', he contributes monthly in the French magazine Liberation, is a regular guest on Infowars. Washington’s Blog, Activist Post, and The Big Picture also post his work. Cindy Sheehan regularly promotes his anti-war art, most recently on her radio show about his drone painting campaign where he intervenes on Thomas Kinkade prints to raise awareness about the cost of the drone wars.

Freda has won several medals from The Society of Illustrators and recently helped jury their annual competition.  He taught a five day workshop with Victor Stabin and Marhsall Arisman, is a guest lecturer at SVA and Pratt, and has been part of the SVA Graduate Mentorship program. He has illustrated for publications Rolling Stone, Village Voice, The New Yorker, Esquire, The New York Times, Village Voice, Entertainment Weekly, National Geographic, Rayggun, Texas Monthly, Playboy, and a host of many more.
