|WILLIAM ANTHONY ON ARTSTAMP. DK GUEST|
Artstamp.dk is proudly to announce eight new Artstamps.dk by the New Yorkbased artist William Anthony (b.1934)
For more than 45 years William Anthony has twisted and turned the conventions, clichés of and preconceptions about the world of images. It is clearly seen through iconography that it is pop. But it is also sub - Pop Art subconscious. A machine which displaces and distorts images. New York Times describes Anthony as “A cult figure” and his work as “hilarious and profound”.
Quotes “I can’t wait for the New Testament. His is the first Bible I could Understand” Andy Warholl for Anthony´s 1978 book BIBLE STORIES. And from Laurie Anderson “!delightfully satiric drawings! a precocious enfant terrible!”
His work is today in the Collection of Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, Art Institute of Chicago , Ludwig Museum among others. Over the last two decades, William Anthony has exhibited several times in Denmark through Stalke Gallery and since 2008 also produced art stamps through Artstamp.dk.
William Anthony has titled his new Art stamps as Miss Lichtenstein Smiles Through Her Tears, Picasso Couple, Baby Doll, Very Small Unidentified Non-Flying Object, A Friendly Face and simply Soup.
