Of his methods, he has said, “Once I have an idea, the medium is secondary, I just set to work with what suits the end result I’m after.” Inspired by iconic objects, we love the way each artwork is a true conversation between the paint and canvas, paired together to create lifelike artworks that are often surprising and humorous.
Antony studied graphics at college and went on to partner with Pez before becoming a prominent artist of the 1980s rave scene. He was later commissioned for murals and large-scale paintings before working in the television world at BBC and Pinewood Studios. He worked for various clients including Sony, LG, Phllips, Panasonic, and Pimms. Additionally, he has exhibited in shows across the UK. On the question of why he makes art, Antony states: “I have always had a fascination for the iconic object. Something that has the power to evoke an emotion, a memory, a visual time stamp, things that compel us to covet them.”
We’ve been working with Antony since 2016.< read less
