About Bryan Anthony
 

 

I was born in Bournemouth, England in 1953. At the tender age of 16 years I joined the Royal Air Force, serving as a technician. Since retiring in 2007, I have been on the journey of self-discovery, seeking my spiritual path. In October 2012 I started life as a traveller in my Ford Transit van, named 'Barramundi', which I self-converted into a mobile sanctuary.  It is my sacred space, and has opened up my life to a whole new way of being, in ways I could not have previously imagined.  This new found freedom has enriched my life, having spent time in England, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, the latter being my current country of residence.

  I am a self-taught didgeridoo player, and can lose myself whilst exploring the rich variety of sounds that can be produced by breathing through these instruments.  It was after a 'didge' workshop, led by the Australian aboriginal Master Djalu Gurriweewee, that I suddenly found myself painting in the aboriginal style.  Initially inspired by one particular work of art, over time I have applied my own interpretation to this very ancient and unique way of painting.  I love walking in nature, which is my greatest inspiration.  A am always awestruck by vibrant sunsets; the seemingly endless combinations of colours being a continuous source of fascination. 
 
I would like to thank the following people for helping to guide me along my path, and explore my inner creativity; aboriginal artist Danny Eastwood, Djalu, and last but not least, my dear friend Julie Ann.  A very accomplished artist herself, she has been a wonderful source of encouragement and support.
 
 
NB: I honor and respect the indigenous cultures around the world, their customs and art forms.  My style of painting is not true Australian aboriginal art.  I sincerely believe I was given 'permission' to 'adopt' the basis of this style of painting during the didgeridoo ceremony performed by aboriginal elder Djalu.  All the art I paint comes purely from my own inspiration.
