The Secret Birds - "Tony Fitzpatrick is always referred to as larger than life. He is a very large man with tattoos and an unusual history, which includes some time in prison for car theft. He is also an actor...a poet...a radio talk-show host and a remarkable artist." View a sampling of his complex series of color etchings - The Infinite Wager, Bum Town and other rich works from this self-taught artist whose prints are prized by many collectors.

I lived next door to his studio (damen/armitage), in chicago, for a year and I see him all the time. I work in that neighborhood. I am a painter. He is not a very talkative guy. He is pretty grumpy. He did wish me good luck when I invited him to a showing of my paintings. He is a powerful artist. Thanks madamjuju for posting. I had not seen his website.
