He had experimented greatly with colors to delineate his figures. His works' themes are taken extensively from folk genre. He is also one of the Masters of Modernism.
Antonio's more recent works see him moving toward abstraction, or a mix of the abstract and the figurative.

He is probably one of the last pillars of Modernism, adhering to its core tenet of dynamic expression.
