Anthony Moman

Anthony Moman was born in London in 1966. After studying art and design at college, he worked in advertising, real estate and the financial markets.
Disciplined in both painting and sculpture, his style can vary but he almost always incorporates subtle but ironic, barbed social observations of contemporary society.
He conveys multi faceted messages through the use of unconventional, unloved, industrial materials and transforms them into alluring objects of desire.
The series of syringe sculptures is called Synergy. "Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of it's part and comes from the Greek word synergos, meaning cooperating or working together". This concept is reflected in the sculptures, where individual syringes metamorphosize into another form with minimal structural interference.
Syringes are very symbolic, invoking a host of different emotional reactions; some positive and some negative. They can alleviate pain, cure or protect against illness and change the way we look and feel about ourselves.
Our very existence can depend on one syringe. They deserve our respect and their place in the history of humanity.
Anthony's work is held in the permanent collection of international museums as well as private and corporate collections.
