Antony Gustard was born in a cave in the North of England in 1984 but now currently resides and works in Mexico City, where very few people know he exists. He earned a BA in Graphic Design & Illustration from De Monfort University, Leicester, UK. His Graphic Design & Illustration training deeply influenced his paintings, as he uses similar techniques and styles to portray his mind messages. Having lived in London, Antony grew a fondness for the fine arts and when he moved to Mexico, he had the freedom and time to experiment with his silly silly style.
My earlier work focused more on political issues (or at least it tried to) however politics are shite, and to be honest they stressed me out more and made me feel worse about life. So I stopped with this topic and tried to concentrate more on my own feelings and thoughts.
My more recent pieces have a higher energy and use more colours, expressing my inner mind thoughts (or brain juice if you will). I hate having things hanging around in my head; ideas, thoughts, memories etc. so I try to put them down on paper or canvas to get them out, and so I can examine them more clearly. This also helps me develop my work and push it forward. I want my work to represent me in the now and express my feelings as an artist. The aim, of my art, is to be visually exciting as well as expressing my inner self. Enjoy!
