It's always great to collaborate with Anthony - he gleefully hurled himself out of his studio comfort zone and took on this 15m wall in Stokes Croft, Bristol. The opportunity was generously provided by Chris Chalkley of the PRSC.
I was keen to see how Anthony would approach this fresh context, with all the restraints and opportunities it held, as ever he was a bundle of energy - I thought it was hard chasing focus around a 2 metre square canvas, this was something else...
Here's a little quote from the man himself
"I am known as a gallery artist, one who paints for gallery shows and my style is expressionist. I wanted to take a style which is not inherently graffiti into the streets and see if I could apply it to a large, urban space. The piece was not planned but painted on impulse in little more than a day - just as I would paint in the studio. As the piece, which was inspired by a storm brewing over a horizon, was completed, a real storm (the much hyped St. Jude's) passed through Bristol. Being a landscape painter is encouraging me to take my work out of a gallery context and painting out of genre is something i am keen to explore, where crossover between painting styles is becoming more common."
