Antonio Ferachi Fine Art
Antonio “Tony” Ferachi is a painter of Louisiana landscapes. His oil paintings are loose and impressionistic in style with bold brush strokes of color. Ferachi paints many facets of the Louisiana landscape from the marsh and bayous, cypress and oak trees, sugarcane, birds to its seafood. He strives to capture the beauty of nature that is around us every day. In a January 24, 2019 feature in The Advocate (Baton Rouge), Ferachi was quoted, “I draw from what I see around me every day. The cane fields, bayous, trees, grasses and birds are my inspiration.”
Ferachi began painting when he was nine years old and he has continued to practice his craft ever since. His work has been featured in The Advocate (Baton Rouge) and 225 Magazine.
