As a child, Tony Eubanks always looked at life with an artist’s eye. He once told a writer for Art of the West magazine, “Everything around me held potential. I drew anything I could think of.”
By the time he was seven, his mother had given him his first set of oil paints. When he enrolled at Texas Tech University in 1958; his dream was to become a cowboy. After graduation and marriage to Brenda Banks, he continued his studies at the Art Center in Los Angeles. Returning to Texas, Eubanks worked for several art agencies then began doing freelance illustration assignments for Reader’s Digest, National Geographic, Time, RCA, NBC and several other publishers.
By the mid-seventies he began placing a few paintings in Santa Fe galleries. Since then, Eubanks has been noted for the diversity of his subject matter – western paintings and landscapes, always with a timeless, charming and colorful appeal. He is also attracted to the dramatic lighting that comes with early morning or late in the day light.
Eubanks’ work was most recently shown in the Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, and the Northwest Rendezvous in Helena, Montana. He has received numerous awards for the Salmagundi Club of New York and the Copley Society of Boston. He is a signature member of Oil Painters of America and is represented in many well-known private and corporate collections, including the Library of Congress in Washington.
