As a fine artist, Blaise Tobia uses digital photographic techniques to create a variety of artistic works. These may be paired images or assembled multi-image pieces (often printed extremely large), text and image combinations, montages, and sequences, often in book form. He also has a special interest in Italy and Italian language and culture; his book "Castle of Eufemio" documenting a small Sicilian town was published in 2007.

Besides his studio practice he is active in critical/historical writing and research, especially on text-image works and non-traditional forms of presentation. He is also interested in non-print forms of photographic presentation, including projected images, computer multi-media and the web.

Recent one-person exhibitions incude Silicon Gallery, the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, the Italian American Museum (NYC) and the Philadelphia International Airport Exhibitions Program, with group shows at Amos Eno Gallery in Brooklyn, Abington Art Center, and the Painted Bride in Philadelphia.
