This pair of underwear was designed for a project for the artist collective known as the Sketchy-Neighbors http://www.sketchyneighbors.com/
They would choose a theme and a material that would be outside their usual medium, such as just painting on canvas.
This projects theme was: Life is...? and the material was Underwear!
Anthony played off the concept of duality and finding the balance of life, in the middle! Life is balance and all joy, no matter how prickly the thorns of the 'rose' gets in uncovering it all.
Anthony is a very cool artist. He's amazingly funny and creates soft, warm, sweet, naughty, smoothly art. I love the soft colors and the curves. They bring a very special energy in the room. It's like he's connected to all the fun stuff in the universe, and with his art he brings it here on earth. Check out my favorites to see more of his art
He also makes video's! This one is called Aspects

Anthony's fine artwork can best be described as a combination of soothing colors and shapes in fluid motion, that gently lead the observer into a world beyond reality, into the realms of imagination. His narrative imagery explores the natural, man-made and etheric worlds and gives honest expressions of life and of the abundance in all things. To look at his paintings is to dream with open eyes.
