British figure painter Anthony Fry was born in England, though his endeavors as a painter have taken him all over the world in his 80-plus years of life. At the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London, a young Fry studied under prominent teachers of abstraction, realism, and landscape and portrait painting, (including Victor Pasmore, William Coldstream, and Lawrence Gowing). In his travels to the U.S., Fry discovered further influences, among them Abstract Expressionist Mark Rothko. Although he would eventually base his studio in India, Fry maintains frequent international travel including visits to Spain, North Africa, and Morocco, which inspire landscapes that have joined the figure as frequent subjects in his work. Using oils, gouache, and watercolors, Fry creates a process of layering to add and subtract paint, ultimately creating textured, dreamlike paintings that radiate incandescent colors.
