Anthony has carried a passion for Art from his early school days in the Eastern Cape. A childhood spent roaming farms and interacting with wildlife, gave him a deep respect and knowledge about his environment, which he now translates into his paintings.
Nearly two decades as a Commercial Artist, Creative Director and later Director of his own advertising agency, did little to quench his thirst for painting. In between being a dad, deadlines and directing, he used what time he had to explore his fascination with art.
Finally he decided to turn his passion into his career and started painting full time in 2004. Since then he has never looked back.
Anthony has an exceptionally rich spectrum of professional and personal experience, abilities and talents to draw from. His experience in design, gleaned from his days as a creative director, has blended well with his instinctive use of a variety of mediums and his ability to draw with awesome accuracy.
He has won the South African Society of Artists award for best mixed media in their annual exhibition, participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions, has frequently been commissioned. Gallery owners and the general public are excited by his unique and dynamic concept and approach to art and in a remarkably short space of time he has made an impact on the art world. His works are in high demand and now hang in most top South African galleries.
