Art Brokerage: Fred "Toby" Bluth American Artist: Fred "Toby" Bluth is an American painter and Animation Director of Disney fine art, who has worked on many Disney films as a Background Artist and Production Designer. He has also had a long career writing and illustrating Children's Books, not to mention performing and or directing, nearly one hundred musicals, both on Broadway and off. Bluth's artwork is prominently displayed at most of the Disney theme parks around the world. He is currently traveling on the Disney Cruise Line, showing off his talent for crowds of all ages. The use of chiaroscuro is apparent in Bluth's work. These subtle variations of light and shade create depth, life and warm, yet cool shadows to each scene. This lends a heightened delineation of character and allows his subjects much more of a unique, almost animated, existence within the painting. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
