ANTHONY LANE

ANTHONY LANE BIOGRAPHY (1961-)

Anthony Lane is a sculptor and multi-award winning graphic designer, who skilfully marries the technical sophistication of a master draughtsman with an instinctive understanding of three-dimensional forms and mass. His sculptural projects are diverse and constantly evolving exploring multiple themes that allow for an interactive and dynamic interplay of ideas. 

His interest in the human condition, order and chaos, the history of art, music and architecture, colour theory, the cosmos, geometry and mathematics, global issues of displacement, discrimination, crime and the influence of social media on society are some of the subjects he explores.

Contemporary, abstract representations of the human form are an ongoing theme in his work. Many of his works are created with purpose of becoming large-scale sculptures for urban and public environments. 

He and his wife, painter Georgia Lane, live and work in Cape Town, South Africa and on the island of Skopelos in Greece. 

 

Born in 1961 in Springs, South Africa

Educated in Pretoria South Africa

Lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa and Skopelos, Greece 

Anthony Lane qualified cum laude as an Art and Design graduate in 1981.

 

He founded Cape Town based Anthony Lane Design Consultancy in 1989 and as a multi award winning designer built an exclusive portfolio of brands for prestigious clients in the wine, cosmetic, sporting, hospitality, industrial and corporate worlds over the next 28 years.

 

His sculptural career commenced in 2012. Anthony Lane made his fine art debut in 2014 with Johans Borman Fine Art. His innovative sculptures have been received with high acclaim by both South African and international collectors alike.
