Myles Antony was born and raised in Dublin, where he studied art under the noted Irish painter, Fergus O'Ryan. While still in his teens, Myles moved to - what was then - 'Swinging London'. Within a short period of time he joined the John Stephen Organisation, founders of the Carnaby Street phenomenon, becoming Art Director after a few years. When the whiz kids of Carnaby Street grew up, Myles moved on to Graphic Design, creating TV logos, record sleeves and movie posters.

In 1985 he held his first solo exhibition at the Edinburgh Festival, which was a great success. Further exhibitions have taken place in Amsterdam at the famed Rob Gallery and in Berlin at the Mr B Gallery. His works were also selected for exhibition at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, in 1990.

Myles Antony has broken barriers in his bold approach to the use of watercolour, being true to, and in great control of the medium. The colours he uses, the delicate lines and the soft focus imagery give his work character and vision. With keenly observed figures in search of an erotic identity, each and every one is a portrait of a real person. His paintings are at times daring, but always warm, human and witty.

MATTERS OF SIZE
“Cock size doesn’t matter to me. I didn’t start doing those gigantic cocks until the censors let the magazines publish full frontal nudity. I had to come up with something you couldn’t get in a photograph. So those big cocks are all for the other guys — I’m an ass man myself.” — Tom of Finland
