“Many artists today attempt to remove any evidence of their hand from their work, but Philadelphia-based artist Anthony Campuzano chooses instead to flood his otherwise reductive compositions with a compulsive scribble”

Ryan Steadman, “Critics’ Picks,” ArtForum (April 2013)

“Crayola-bright colors, meandering texts, and shakily drawn lines lend the Philadelphia artist’s drawings an appealingly goof-off tone.”

“Goings On About Town: Art, Anthony Campuzano,” The New Yorker (April 2013)

“Anthony Campuzano may have moved to New York with $150 in his pocket; broken up with his girlfriend, witnessed a murder and lived through 9/11; but when he threw in the towel to move back to Philly eight years ago, his career finally took off.”

Katherine Rochester, “Artist Up Close: Anthony Campuzano,” Philadelphia Weekly (August 2012)

“Anthony Campuzano’s recent drawings in his solo show “Water’s March” at Churner and Churner combine text and graphic elements with explorations of color and mark-making.”

Adrin Valdez, “Only So Deep,” Artslant.com (June 2011)

Ann Landi, “Where the Art Happens: Museums are finding ingenious ways to connect visitors with the artist’s interior world,” Art News (June 2010)

“The artists use various media–Musson works digitally, Campuzano paints and draws, and Da Corte sculpts–and their messages are delivered with urgency.”

Roberta Fallon, “Words on the Street,” The Philadelphia Weekly
(February 11,2009)

“Like a writer’s second novel, the artist’s second one-person show often catches its creator in an experimental mode. Anthony Campuzano’s second exhibition at Fleisher/Ollman is no exception.”

Edith Newhall. “Anthony Campuzano Takes Us Where Dead Men Walk,” The Philadelphia Inquirer (October 5,2007)
