Tony LaGundia is an American artist, born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan in 1971. When he was 28 years old he was injured in a ski accident, shattering his right arm completely. He lost all function in the arm and was forced to find a career to accommodate his handicap. After working in bureaucratic jobs, he began making art. LaGundia is credited with inventing leaky-edge abstraction whereby undiluted, raw color shoots from within the edges of the rectangle rather than going beyond it. In his sculptural work, the artist grabs materials from everyday life to create simple but challenging installations.Recently, a younger generation of artists re-visited LaGundía’s leaky-edge abstraction – creating a "post-post-modernist minimalism" because of its color explosion.
