Anthony Moman Artist Bio:
I picked up a pencil and scribbled before I could walk and talk. After studying Art and Design at college I worked in advertising and then the financial markets during the nineties. My work is strongly influenced by my work experiences where the recurring theme of "greed is good " sits incongruously with my insatiable quest for spiritual enlightenment and cultural nourishment. I derive as much satisfaction from creating sculptures as I do painting. I now divide my time between London and Italy. Artist Statement: Half reality, half fantasy : the world that occupies my mind and where I play out my ideas in this make believe world, with the use of irony, satire and humour. The world is a crazy place with some unbelievable truths that lead to arguments and laughter within my head. I am inspired by life,anything from a can of coca cola to my son playing with his toy soldiers, can bring an image or idea in my head. The use of colours reflects my character and, I hope some of my humour but there is always something else behind the facade and the first impression is not what always what it seems. You need to forget some of your prejudices, and with an open mind, look behind the images. I often use bright colours on poignant subjects or unconventional material alongside more desirable objects. My creations are a part of me and who I am. What drives me is how to translate my ideas onto canvas or a sculpture when my mind is overflowing.
