Anton is a Russian artist living in Bushwick, having immigrated to the United States in 2001. Anton is an artist of his generation, significantly influenced and inspired by Expressionism including the works of Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and John-Michel Basquiat. His work represents a collision of cubism, abstract, and postmodern art. As a result, his stylish, original, revolutionary, and avant garde art is a projection of his subconscious cosmos on canvas. Anton creates visual movement and often his creations are accompanied by human faces or animals including powerful philosophical commentaries on human existence. In addition to painting, Anton uses a variety of found objects and other materials to craft his art and build hypnotic sculptures. Anton’s art is sold internationally, with over 300 works of in private collection in the United States, Canada, Israel, France, Russia, and South Africa. Following his show at Unruly, Anton will be showing his next collection in France.
"We are very pleased and excited to be the newest cultural addition along what is rapidly becoming the next destination or epicenter of the NYC art scene. We feel Bushwick offers the perfect opportunity to create, collaborate, cohabitate, and drive social change through ingenuity, inspiration, imagination, and the aesthetics, said Charles Pastore, Co-founder of UNRULY. “Through collaboration with Anton and his work, we hope to cultivate and promote creativity in our community.”
