Artist of the Month

Tony Kew was born in South Africa in 1937 but is also an Irish citizen. After living in Toronto, Canada for a number of years he finally settled in Ireland. He celebrates his three score and tenth birthday (70yrs) with an exhibition in Bold Art Gallery entitled “This & That”.

It is difficult to define Kew’s work as there are lots of different influences coming into play such as mythology, religion, classics, symbolism, and fantasy. His work has a strong figurative style highly influenced by artists such as Caravaggio and Van Dyck.

“I am a painter who sees and therefore paints in a realistic way. I am sometimes perturbed by the interpretations I see of the female form, especially as they are so called “portraits”.
