Ant Carver

Ant Carver (b.1991) graduated from Oxford Brookes with a degree in Fine Art and now works from a studio in Whitechapel, London.

He is a figurative painter who combines traditional oil painting techniques with a contemporary style working on aluminium panel. His paintings combine realistic elements together with looser more abstract mark making and sketched elements. His work explores life experiences, most recently linked to his own reflections on grief and loss. Alongside his colourful or monochromatic figures he incorporates symbolism to ask questions about relationships human interaction and the vulnerability of life.

His interest in art originated from a passion for street art and graffiti. His paintings draw eclectic inspiration from artists such as Rembrandt, Conor Harrington, Jenny Saville and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
