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 Organization, 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. Since then he has
exhibited yearly at Adonis Art. Together with publications of
Myles' work as greetings cards and limited editions, exhibitions
have also been held 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 watercolor, being true to, and in great control
of, the medium. The colors he uses, the delicate lines, the soft
focus imagery, give his work character and vision. With keenly
observed figures in search of an erotic ID, each and every one
is a portrait of a real person.
The paintings are at times daring and amusing, but
always beautiful and romantic.
