Berry Artist of the Week – ANTHONY ADAMS

How long have you been an artist?

All my life but professionally for about 4 years.

How did you get involved?

I have always painted and drawn but work professionally as a Makeup Artist. One day I was doing a friend’s makeup at my place when she asked about the artwork around my home. When I said it was mine, she was excited as she was just about to do an exhibition and asked me to join!

What do you love about art? What is your motivation?

I love having the chance to put my message and opinions out to the world in art form. I am motivated by the fact that people actually like my work. Each piece calls upon me to create it – so it just has to happen.

How would you describe your style?

Collage Artist with a pop art feel.

Who/what are your influences?

Andy Warhol, Banksy, Basquait.

What are some of your favourite personal works?

It would have to be my Ru Paul piece it is so stunning in real life and really leaves an impact.

What is your creative process?

I have the idea and concept then I get to cutting out hundreds of pictures and words to create the artwork. Next is the pasting it all into place, manipulating the work with acrylics and ink then sealing the whole piece with a gloss varnish.

What are your goals?

I would love to be able to create art full time and on day do a full exhibition in NYC!
