This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, printmaker, craftsperson and art educator, Anthony Velonis was a pioneer in making serigraphs, a process he invented when working for the Federal Art Project during the Depression.  Serigraphs are screenprints in paint, rather than ink, and are created in totality by the artist beginning with the design, then the making of the stencils followed by the application of the paint and the pulling of the sheets.    The innovation was the joining of the artist with the printmaking, which heretofore had involved a commercial printer simply using an artist's design.  With this new approach using 'the hand of the artist', screenprinting was elevated in the minds of some art critics to the status of fine art rather than commercial art.

Velonis lived in Ridgefield, New Jersey and worked in New York City.  He studied at the College of Fine Art of New York University and was active with the Union of American Artists.  He was a teacher at the American Art School and authored a book, Technique of Silk Screen Process, 1939.
