Based in United Kingdom
My name is Tony Broadbent, born in 1958 and I am an artist from Leeds, West Yorkshire
My artwork is mainly abstract, semi-surreal and occassionaly psychedelic from oil on canvas to pen and ink on paper, mixed media. All my work is concerned with colour and form as well as the representation of a theme or angst.
The signature of my work is bold, vibrant colours with stark or subtle imagery and has been described as a departure from the mundane. I am inspired by 1950's Abstract Expressionism, the Post Impressionists and Pre - Raphaelites mainly though I will steal any influences that attract me and paint in any style that moves me. My favorite artists are Dali., Picasso, Cesar Manrique, Miro ( to an extent ), the Pre - Raphaelites, W.M.Turner and I appreciate/admire many more.
I am collected both privately and internationally.
