Ant Carver is a contemporary British artist, living and working in London. His distinctive style is inescapably infused by his urban surroundings: combining street art with traditional painting techniques, using an innovative mix of oil and spray paint, his work straddles the old and the new to breathtaking effect. Carver’s aesthetic turns around the classic portrait, reinventing the age-old form with a bold, decisive streak that reflects contemporary urban art. On the street, his large-scale murals are striking, merging graffiti tags in vibrant colours, with skilled, monochrome illustration. In printed form, the vitality of Carver’s work is captured through hand painted detailing, contrasting the figurative with the abstract, incorporating impressionist elements, and experimenting with colour for immediate visual impact. Pushing at the boundaries of emerging forms, Ant Carver is one to watch.
