  • About the Artist
    Born in Perak, Malaysia. Niçois by adoption, works and lives in Nice.
    He started in the art world by working for American artist and fashion designer Ken Scott in Milan Italy in the 1980s and the same time taking fine arts classes at scuola di Belle Arti di Brera and Scuola d’Arte Applicata del Castello in Milan. Michel decided to pursue his passion by becoming a full-time artist and left Milan to Install in Nice.
    Over the years, he has developed a specific style of artworks of his own.
    To achieve a perfect quality, Michel has established links with the famous foundry of Massimo Del Chiaro in Pietrasanta, Italy, where renowned international artists such as Fernando Botero, Giuseppe Penone, Richard Brixel and others work.

    His first bronze sculpture won the first prize at the Prestige of Art & Prestige of Europe in Nice. Another sculpture, ''Aidos'', was awarded the Prix de la Commission Nationale auprès de l'UNESCO '' in Monaco.

    In his workshop in Old Nice, he continues to create and honour institutional and private orders.

    First of all, its only after much contemplation and mental visualisation of the form,volume and space and later by drawing this imagination on a piece of paper, or some time doing a painting of these idea that I am able to eventually conceptionalize these vibrational art pieces in three dimension sculptures.
    In every art piece of mine one can feel the passion and emotion put in it, and each time I marvel at my creation and believing as its the ultimate and the best artwork that I have ever done.
    Quite often someone ask me like how long does it takes to finish a certain piece of work, its impossible and I can never put a time period to finish a said creation, as a for an example I started up to touch up a sculpture that’s to be 35x37x24cm and it ended 70x80x35cm. I remember another painting after its done I felt that there is something’s missing in it, and one year later all I had to do is just add a few dash of splashes of water which took only a mere ten minutes and Bingo... its done.
    And its hugely rewarding when you see a person walk toward the sculpture with that awe and admiration in their eye’s and only after caressing it and with guilt, they ask if it was OK to touch them. Ha ha haa! even though its strictly “ verboten “ to touch with greasy hands etc... for me its a pure pleasure when this happens. As its very appreciable knowing that they senses the vibration of what I am transmitting through my works invoking some deep and positive colours on somebodies feeling, and that what I am doing is after all thats special indeed.
    1) A wonderful reward it was when it was announced that the prestigious prize of the year 2005 for painting & sculpture goes to Michel Anthony in Nice, France
    2) It was a sweet surprise when it was announced that I was the winner during the “ Salon A.I.A.P. UNESCO 2012 “ , in Monaco, for my sculpture " Aidos "
    3) For me its quite an honour when my sculpture " The Power of Music " was selected for the " Bicentenary of Giuseppe Verdi " and exhibited at the M.O.CA Montecatini Terme Tuscany in Italy in 2013
    4) Recieved “ Prix Revelateur de Talents 2015 ” of La Art freedom Salon Business Art at l'Espace Pierre Cardin, Paris.
