He Who Kneels

The Beauty of Failure is a unique look at the reward and punishment systems, and more specifically when the two overlap. The paintings and sculptures in this show demonstrate a tongue in cheek look at contemporary pop culture through Anthony’s signature artistic style.

Anthony’s paintings, drawings, sculptures and happenings pull from his experiences as a youth in Australia. Superheroes, skateboarding, graffiti, tattoos, the internet, and pop culture are reflected in his artistic practice. His fine art has been displayed in galleries across the globe in cities such as New York, London, Los Angeles, Sydney and now Toronto.

The Beauty of Failure runs through August 8, 2010.
