about this item
The Secret Birds, named for his series of paintings by the same title, is Tony Fitzpatrick's collection of work inspired by the iconography of birds. Following a successful quadruple bypass surgery in January 2015, Fitzpatrick muses on mortality and a life spent traveling, collecting, and telling stories.
Tony Fitzpatrick's work is collected by the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. Before making a living as an artist, Fitzpatrick worked as a radio host, bartender, boxer, construction worker, and film and stage actor.
