Anthony Filipelli (b. 1995) is an American artist from Deerfield Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He received his Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Pennsylvania’s Stuart Weitzman School of Design and his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography and Imaging from ArtCenter College of Design. Filipelli currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. 

    Anthony Filipelli produces philosophical works of art that offer new ways to perceive, contemplate, and imagine the world in which we live. He converts mass-produced products into self-actualized individuals, ubiquitous environments into anomalous space, accepts chance, and embraces procedural transparency to assist in non-deceptive outcomes. Filipelli primarily works in the physical realm to initiate tangible involvement, experiences, and dialogue.
