Trinidad & Tobago
Anthony George was born in Trinidad and Tobago and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, A largely self-taught artist he mainly works in oil on canvas exploring subjects thematically in series or individual subjects such as portraiture. A favorite subject is the annual West Indian Day Carnival in New York and its display of vibrant color, action, and movement. George captures the striking colors of the costumed revelers but also the ordinary folks who are caught in the pageantry. His portraiture derives from the satisfaction of capturing a dignified representation of his subjects.
