About

Anthony Ackrill paints directly onto found objects, seamlessly blending painting and sculpture. In "Relapse" Ackrill depicts a swan in water, humorously smoking a cigarette. Green lily-pads can be seen in the background. This painting is painted on a silver platter. The plate's edge acting as a frame. Artist Bio Anthony Ackrill was born in Alaska in 1958, but spent most of his childhood in Florida and Ohio. He decided to pursue painting at a relatively late age. Subsequently, he studied graphic design, and worked as an art director at an established advertising agency. In addition, he designed his own line of humorous greeting cards, which sold internationally. Following this period, Mr. Ackrill began to study drawing and painting on his own. After winning awards in several local and regional art contests, as well as selling some of his paintings, he sought a more formal education to help develop his talent. Mr. Ackrill found an excellent atelier-styled school for artists in Florence, Italy and enrolled in late 1995, at the age of 37. In his second year in Florence, Mr. Ackrill began teaching anatomy to his fellow students, and then also taught drawing and painting. After five years of painting and teaching in Florence Italy, he returned to Florida, where he now has his own studio. EDUCATION Florence Academy of Art, Florence, Italy 1995-2000 TEACHING EXPERIENCE Instructor of Anatomy, Drawing and Painting, Florence Academy of Art 1996-2000
