Anthony Frost, the son of Sir Terry Frost, was born in St Ives, Cornwall. Between 1970 and 1973 he studied at the Cardiff College of Art acheiving a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Since then he has lectured on his subject at Falmouth School of Art, Canterbury School of Art, University of East London, Anglia University and served on the Devon County Advisory team at the Torquay Foundation Centre. He has been artist in residence at the Cyprus School of Art, Cyprus, Montmiral School of painting, Tarn, France and was Judge and Organiser at the Seven Celtic Artists Exhibition, Finnistere, France.
Anthony has been working in Cornwall since he graduated from Cardiff College of Art and lives deep within the West Penwith rural landscapes of Rosemergy, near Morvah on the Atlantic coast. He is an active member of the well recognised artistic community of Penwith and exhibits regularly with the Newlyn Society of Artists.
Music has always been an important part of Frost’s creativity and has been an inspiration for many years; more recently his personal artistic language has developed alongside the music he listens to in his studio. He has always believed music to be the ultimate artform and says that he has been inspired far more strongly by musicians than by other artists. Over the years Anthony’s work has been exhibited at many of the major galleries in the UK and he has had solo exhibitions in London, Canterbury, Hull, Newlyn, Cambridge, Jersey and Gutersloh in Germany.
