ARTNOW presents:

 ‘’There is a liberating quality to drawing on the iPad, it’s a new language – not a watercolour, not an oil painting. [The] multitude of options are fascinating for someone who enjoys exploring how quickly a change of colour or line can immediately impact the feeling of a work ’’ 

Using the iPad as his medium, Anthony’s recent work is a lively exploration of the inherent tension between figuration and abstraction. Whatever the medium, be it brush and oil paint or the iPad, Anthony draws his inspiration from the immediate environment and in particular the south of France.

Anthony Hobbs was born in Southampton, England and studied art, design and illustration at St. Martin’s School of Art in London. Upon moving to Montreal in 1968, he built a distinguished career as a graphic designer and taught graphic design at Dawson College. He was also a visiting lecturer at Concordia University. Hobbs has enjoyed many solo and group exhibitions throughout Quebec.

A retrospective of Anthony's work is on exhbition from September 12th to October 5th, at the Gallery at Victoria Hall, 4626 sherbrooke St. West, Westmount.
