ANTHONY COLEMAN

ANTHONY COLEMAN (b. 1969) was born and raised in Philadelphia. Fueled by a desire to create, Coleman began drawing his unique portraits at a young age. Coleman drew on whatever he could find, cutting out each finished figure and carrying it in his wallet wherever  he  went. Many of these
early portraits were created on discarded cardboard boxes while Coleman was working at Pizza Hut. Coleman infuses his distinct style—elongated noses, exaggerated features,
antenna-like protuberances, and highly saturated colors—into his colored pencil portraits. Favorite subjects include cartoons from the ‘70s and ‘80s, celebrities, aliens, and circus clowns.

Coleman has exhibited his art in group shows at La LUZ de JESUS GALLERY and Fleisher/Ollman, as well as group shows and two solo shows at SAGE Studio. Coleman's work is collected internationally and has been twice shown
at the Outsider Art Fair in New York City.
