An artist of meticulous intent, Anthony Gadd's dedication shines through as he carefully selects each subject's pose and composition.

He treasures the magic of the unexpected, infusing his pieces with a sense of vitality and authenticity.
Anthony's artistry bridges the gap between the powerful and the delicate, capturing fleeting moments that resonate with creativity and meticulous attention to detail. His fascination with the raw beauty of the sea and barren landscapes comes to life through his masterful brushwork. From the stark contrast of exposed rocks against serene beaches to the ever-changing hues of the sea, Anthony's work encapsulates the dynamic essence of nature's transformations.
"Along the West Coast" is a testament to Anthony Gadd's ability to translate the profound changes in time and nature onto canvas. With each stroke, he preserves the essence of these landscapes, inviting you to witness their grandeur and feel their captivating energy. Dive into the world he's meticulously crafted, where artistic freedom and a deep connection to the environment converge in perfect harmony.
Anthony Gadd has had a passion for art since his early school days in the Eastern Cape. A childhood spent roaming farms and interacting with wildlife gave him a deep respect for his environment, which he now translates into his South African landscape paintings.
A perfectionist at heart, Anthony Gadd chooses each subject's pose and composition carefully. But whether capturing intimate portraits of South African wildlife, an unspoiled landscape, or the sea's wildness, his work leaves room for surprise and playfulness. "My style has been described as loose, bold, and expressive. I treasure the 'happy accident' which brings gesture and freshness to each piece I create."
"I think I've matured from my original, more realistic style to become looser and more abstract." His approach includes doing most of his painting with four-inch brushes (the type used to paint a house) "so the brushwork has gesture and freshness."
Gadd has won the SA Society of Artists award for best-mixed media, holds permanent exhibitions in numerous galleries, has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, and is frequently commissioned. Gallery owners and art lovers can't get enough of his unique and dynamic approach to art.
Anthony works from his studio in Cape Town, is married to artist and author Ann, and has two children.
