Antono’s works are related to popular contemporary artists who work with unique painting styles, featuring elements of Pop Art and Surrealism.

As it was reported by Artsy, in 2019, the demand for Antono’s work was much lower. And then in 2020, the collectors interested in his works suddenly increased, and the platform raised almost seven times. This year has already become the greatest for him, and he almost tripled the total number of last year’s requests.
