Antony Micallef

"Enigmatic U artist, Antony Micallef, returns to Rathbone gallery with a new solo exhibition entitled 'Happy, Deep Inside My Heart', from 9 September. Micallef’s collection of paintings seeks to blur the lines between attraction and revulsion by tapping into our social obsessions with consumerism through figurative and abstract imagery. The artist provocatively compares his work to a Disney film that slowly turns into a violent pornography, where the viewer cannot really see the change happening. Micallef’s previous sell out shows in London and LA has established his reputation within the Art world and his outdoor sculptures and painting took a prominent position at the Royal Academy's Burlington Gardens in a previous GSK Contemporary showcase." via dazedmag
