Oliver the Lion
Experience the captivating artistry of Anthony Gadd with "Oliver the Lion," a mesmerizing abstract creation by the renowned South African wildlife artist. Vibrant colours bring the lion's majestic presence to life in this original oil painting on canvas.
Gadd's meticulous approach to subject and composition reflects his commitment to artistic excellence. His style, characterized by boldness and expressiveness, is underscored by an appreciation for the spontaneity that brings each piece to life. Anthony's mastery lies in capturing fleeting moments, infusing each work with creativity, intricate detail, and boundless artistic freedom.
Gadd's affinity for the untamed sea and rugged landscapes is evident throughout his portfolio. From the interplay of light on exposed rock formations to the ever-shifting hues of the ocean, his pieces embody the wild's dynamic nature. "Oliver the Lion" stands as a testament to his ability to immortalize these transient moments, inviting you to witness nature's perpetual transformation.
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 with careful care and consideration. 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 alike 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.
