Anthony Micallef is an English contemporary artist and painter born 1975 in Swindon. Micallef is widely recognized as one of the finest painters in contemporary art today. His ambitious and opulent canvases examine this generation's complex relationship with consumerism and indulgence. His work concerns itself with what he sees as the ‘frivolities’ of pop culture in a process that’s been dubbed ‘critical pop’. Collectors of his work include Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and a handful of Hollywood’s young, bright and beautiful. Anthony has work in collections all over the world and has exhibited in group shows in institutions such as the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy, Tate Britain and the ICA London.
