Artist's Bibliography
A painter of marine and figurative subjects, Amos has abandoned the use of brushes in favour of his hands, lending great immediacy to his paintings.

Antony was born in Bristol in 1950. From an early age, he worked with horses and as a nurseryman. This was followed by a career at sea working on trawlers, tugs and deep sea cargo ships. By 1980, he had begun to paint seriously spending more and more time experimenting with all subject matter, bits of card, scraps of material - all to bring different textures to the work.

His preferred material was based on the sea - the working shipyards, scrapyard ships and fishing boats that had seen a lot of life on the sea, but now also includes architectural, horse and lifeboat subjects. He is inspired with all things to do with the weather and colours of the atmosphere. His love of outdoor life has given him a unique feel for interpreting the many moods of his environment by the sea. His studio does not contain a single paintbrush - he works with rags and fingers.
