Antony Micallef >
Antony Micallef is a British contemporary artist and painter working in London.
He is widely recognised as one of the finest painters in contemporary art today.
He has work in collections all over the world and has exhibited in group shows in institutions such as the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy, Tate Britain and the ICA London.
A graduate in Fine Arts from the University of Plymouth, Micallef’s practice has been summarised as ‘critical pop’, exposing the darker side of our consumerist society and the human condition.
His use of neutral colours and depictions of the human form delve beyond pop culture and bring to the surface many of the things that operate underneath the cultural construct.
