Drawing on ideas and themes often relating to personal experiences, Tony's work reflects a desire to resurrect and comment on the faded and overlooked aspects of London. Living in the environment he draws inspiration from, has a direct impact on Tony's methods of working. For reasons unknown he has a constant wish to tell the story of the London’s inhabitants, whether known to himself or not. These stories he tells through careful assemblages and appropriations of his observations.
Tony graduated from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in 2003.
