My friend Jodhi Needs-Ham introduced me to a website called cgunit, its awesome! it has all the kind of artists i like on it, so i had a right rummage. I found photographer/artist Chris Anthony, I believe i saw his work at the new world art gallery in Bristol, but i may of just made that up in my head.
Anyway, his photographs are haunting and murky. The girl with the stripey legs reminds me of Hans Bellmer esque art and the guy in the pointy hat reminds me of the mighty Michael Hussar. The paleness of the pictures makes me feel like the imagery is dreamy.
Verdict- This Chris guy is a fantastic artist, one to watch.
