Antony Micallef

Antony Micallef's work is rather like the man himself, at once beautiful and deeply troubling. Described as "Bacon in Disneyland", Antony's paintings, predominantly composed of charcoal and oils, are equally powerful when transferred to the medium of print – figures and faces loom through the veil of loose, confident, almost abstract brushstrokes, and animals and humans merge in the accidents of the artist's stream of dark consciousness. All in, he's not just a fine artist, he's a damn fine artist.
