Dow creates abstract bronze sculptures. Tony describes his work saying “The figures are abstract and not meant to represent reality but rather the truth of the interactions as I see and feel them”. I find the wood in the hills of Topanga Canyon and each piece evolves from my subconscious. I produce limited editions of nine bronzes using the lost wax process from molds of the original burl sculpture.” One of his bronze pieces was on display in the backyard garden of Barbara Billingsley, who played his mother on Leave It to Beaver. He was chosen as one of three sculptors to show at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition, in the Carrousel du Louvre, in Paris, France, in December 2008.
Michael produces works in many styles. His pieces on display at The Murphy include original pinups, commercial automotive art, and a whimsical homage to the ‘70s Odd Rods trading cards.
Since 2017, Michael has been Editor In Chief for Drive! Magazine, a monthly publication that has the distinction of being one of the nation’s longest-running automobile magazines. Michael works with photographers, editors, and contributors to spotlight events, tech, installations, product reviews, and lend support to the automotive aftermarket.
