Anthony Frost, the son of Sir Terry Frost, is an English artist noted for his abstract works consisting of brightly-coloured prints and collages. Anthony Frost's paintings and prints are bright, full of colour and expression. They include repeated motifs (lines, triangles and dots) and a mix of materials (acrylic, hessian, sail cloth, string and other materials that come to hand). This hints at a complexity in the work, which at first sight appears quite straightforward. Although there is an element of planning in each work, there is also a random element which manifests itself in the creative process: adding a piece of material or a tie that can change the painting's direction in unplanned ways.
Music has always been an important part of Anthony Frost's creativity and has been an inspiration for many years; more recently his personal artistic language has developed alongside the music he listens to in his studio. He has always believed music to be the ultimate art form and says that he has been inspired far more strongly by musicians than by other artists. Anthony Frost is a fan of The Fall and his work appears on a number of their record covers, most notably Extricate.
From 1970–1973 Frost studied at the Cardiff College of Art gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Since then Anthony Frost has lectured on his subject at Falmouth School of Art, Canterbury School of Art, University of East London and Anglia Ruskin University. He is a prominent member of the artistic community of West Cornwall, and his work featured in the ‘Art Now Cornwall’ exhibition at Tate St Ives in 2007.
Over the years Anthony Frost's work has been exhibited at many of the major galleries in the UK and he has had solo exhibitions in London, Canterbury, Hull, Newlyn, Cambridge, Jersey and Gutersloh in Germany.
