It's a sweet relief, experiencing art as God intended - not flattened and pixelated on a smartphone's screen, but close-up at first hand.
So much gets lost in digital translation: the subtle chemistry of interacting colours, the claggy textures of oil paint, the coarseness or delicacy of a line, paper's idiosyncratic bumps and rumples. Despite the hegemony of Instagram, art exists in three dimensions.
Anthony has been sketching and painting ever since childhood. He had a wonderfully unconventional teacher who thankfully recognised his talent and let him sketch whatever he liked during Maths class, which helped him hone his skills from a young age. He has never stopped painting since.
Describing his style as 'modern classical', he studied at Salisbury before obtaining a degree in Fine Art at Cambridge College of Art. His preferred medium is oils, although he also works in charcoal, pencil and watercolour.

Anthony has an uncanny ability to capture the mood and emotion and dare I say - the spirit - of people, animals, entire scenes. His paintings are often haunting and evocative, with a dash of spellbinding for good measure.
I love his work because I always feel as though his subjects could simply stroll out of his paintings. That's talent!
