Monograph artist focus: Antony Micallef

Antony Micallef, No One Understands Me

Described as Caravaggio meets Manga and Bacon in Disneyland, Antony Micallef’s beautiful yet disturbing images are inspired by the works of Old Masters, graffiti, fashion magazines and Japanese cartoons.

Micallef appeared on the art scene in 2000, winning second prize in the BP Portrait Award competition at the National Portrait Gallery.
Since then his mix of political imagery fused with contemporary expressionism has won him worldwide acclaim. He combines contemporary cultural aspects and combines them with the human experience.

Abstracted human forms delve beyond pop culture and bring to the surface many of the things that operate beneath the cultural construct.Micallef has exhibited throughout the world in locations including Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo and Bethlehem. Recent group exhibitions include the Royal Academy’s Burlington Gardens (part of the GSK Contemporary) and the Tate Britain.

In 2011 Micallef sold out his London solo exhibition ‘Happy deep inside my heart’.

His work is collected by Jude Law, Michael Stipe of REM and Amanda de Cadenet.
