Tony Eubanks

American, born 1939  Biography

Born in Dallas Texas, Tony Eubanks spent his early childhood in Corpus Christi and drew and painted at an early age. When he was 10, his family moved to a country farm in Grapevine, Texas. He took art training at Texas Tech University, North Texas University and the Art Center in Los Angeles. 

He and his wife, Brenda, settled in Southlake, Texas, where he did freelance illustration for national magazines. By the mid-1970s, he became a full-time artist, and he and his wife have since traveled extensively on foreign soil.

Eubanks' talent is recognized and understood in the genre of contemporary western painting. With a background in illustration, Tony remains a very diversified painter. He believes that most illustrators are taught to have a wide range of interest, so it is a natural follow-through for him as a painter. Years of travel have also greatly equipped Tony to expand his realm of subject matter, although he is well-known for his western subjects which include figurative, landscape, pueblo Indians and cowboys.

Eubanks' exhibitions are numerous, including the Prix de West Invitational in Oklahoma City, Quest For the West Invitational in Indianapolis, and the Northwest Rendezvous, of which he is a member. He has also shown in the Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in Los Angeles, and has received numerous awards from the Salmagundi Club of New York and the Copley Society of Boston.
