About Anthony Liggins
“I am a messenger, I want my work to bring enlightenment and passion,” says Anthony Liggins, whose art is always rooted in his sense of spirituality. A student of eastern philosophies such as Zen and Japan’s Wabi Sabi, he approaches his mixed-media paintings as a continuation of his learning in these subjects. They are composed of bright, layered colors, and elements such as Plexiglas, yarn, ebony, aged bamboo, stones, metal, and “other talismans,” as he says. Liggins considers folk music, dance, and Abstract Expressionism to be among influences on his practice.
