Anthony de Klerk Artist Bio:
After several years in advertising as a senior Art Director and Head of Art at FCB Cape Town and studying life painting at The Ryno Swart Art Gallery, Anthony finally broke away in 2014 to pursue his passion for painting from life on a fulltime basis. In his art Anthony celebrates the beauty and intrigue of the female form. He prefers to paint in oils on canvas, and has also developed an interesting expressionistic "Pop Art" style where he uses mixed media. These works happen in the moment during studio sittings and when the magic happens the piece will resonate and be selected to show. All his studies are inspired by live sittings. His works are selling steadily following a number of successfull shows in and around South Africa as well as the Saatchi online Gallery. Recently curated to feature on the Saatchi Art "Contemporary nudes" collection. Recent exhibitions include a show at Biba Art in Smithfield, First Thursdays at Friends of Design and a solo exhibition at BrightDay gallery in Cape Town. Anthony is now also represented in New York State by La Place Art Gallery. Anthony lives and works in Cape Town South Africa. He is a resident artist and teacher at BrightDay studios in Salt River Cape Town.
