Anthony Daley British-Jamaican

Overview

Colour is hypnotic, it takes all humans by surprise. The split-second moments of abstract skies, a river reflecting hallucinations of light, the pink fog of a spring morning – these abstract moments surround us outside of the canvas.

Anthony Daley (b. 1960 in Jamaica, lives and works in London) received his Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from Wimbledon School of Art in 1982, and his Masters Degree in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in 1983.


Daley was awarded the Pollock-Krasner Painting Fellowship in 1984 and has exhibited in over 25 solo exhibitions internationally; in London, New York, Los Angeles and Zurich. His work is held in The Tate and the National Portrait Gallery. Daley’s work was also included in Edward Lucie-Smith’s seminal publication, Art Today, and the 2014 publication Black Artists in British Art by Eddy Chambers.

 

Daley’s work was recently included in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2021, Reclaiming Magic, coordinated by Yinka Shonibare CBE (RA), and in 2022 his work will be the subject of a solo exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery, London.
