Ê

"Like many artists in the last year, I expected to be painting like crazy over the whole lockdown period. But instead, I felt totally uninspired, questioning everything I was doing or thinking about and second guessing every idea. I found myself focusing on other things to pull through the first lockdown creating 3D printed PPE Visors for the NHS and Key Workers.

Ê

As an artist who draws hugely on social interaction and the immense lack of that as the lockdowns continued, I turned to social media and news, but the more I did, the worse I felt, and it seemed to me everyone else was feeling this. I wanted to find a way to capture this moment in time and sum this feeling up. No matter where I looked or listened it seemed everything was ÒgratingÓ on us! As with many of my ideas, the moment I have that internal thought, a rush of ideas trigger off each other to form an image almost instantlyÉ Grate Britain!"

About The Artist - Antony 'H' Haylock


After studying graphics at college Antony, under the name H, teamed with partner Pez and quickly rose to become one of the foremost artists in the late 80’s Rave scene, producing artwork for the first flyers and art installations on a large scale.


As the Rave scene legalised and developed into the UK club scene, H was employed to bring the urban, gritty feel of the illegal warehouses to the interiors of the leading clubs throughout the country.
With this growing popularity there became a constant demand for bespoke commissioned murals and paintings. These works challenged H’s skills to explore new directions in medium and style, providing a great foundation for what lay ahead.


1998 saw H take a change in direction into the world of television as he was offered the chance to work as a Production Designer on the CBeebies TV show Dream Street, working at Pinewood Studios. After working creatively on a succession of shows at Pinewood, he became nominated for the Guild of British Film Designers in 2004 and worked on several movies over the next few years.


In 2007 H ventured into the world of CGI forming production company Annix with several colleagues. They created and produced 52 episodes of the CGI hit TV show Little Charley Bear for CBeebies. As Creative Director, H designed Charley Bear and the entire look and feel of the show. This was one of the first programmes to take the feel of classic children’s shows of the past and present them with modern techniques for a TV budget. Craving his past hands-on, practical approach to his work, he returned to Southend and formed a Creative Solutions Collective working for London based agencies. Using skills he had honed working at Pinewood Studios, they designed and created many large, weird and wonderful art installations for exhibitions throughout the country. Working for clients such as Sony, LG, Phillips, Panasonic, Pimms to name but a few.


Throughout these years H always produced his own artwork, as well as commissions, however he was never able to fully concentrate on his art in a manner that fully satisfied him. This changed in 2014 when a client who had keenly followed H’s work and career was inspired to make an offer of patronage, affording H the freedom to fully explore the creative process within him and follow his own inspiration. The last couple of years have seen an exciting new path of H’s creative journey which is finally allowing him to draw on the diverse avenues of his creative experience to produce paintings and full art installations in a range of mediums, some familiar and some new to him.
