Bryant is a home-grown artist from West Cornwall, reflecting in his vibrantly coloured abstracts a strong emotional tie to his native environment. He was one of the few fortunate artists who showed their work in the short-lived Hilton Young Gallery on Chapel Street in 2008-9, but has been exhibiting locally in St Ives, Penzance (Rainyday Gallery) and further afield (Bath, Bristol, London, Cambridge, and Holland).
From 1980 through to 2002, his main focus and career was in sculptural green wood-turning, and examples of his work are in prestigious museum collections internationally, from the V&A Museum, the Liverpool Museum & Art Gallery, the Sainsbury Collection to as far afield as Hawaii. The designer David Linley has noted Bryant as being one of the five designers he admires most in the contemporary craft field.
Most recently his work was hung in 'Transition 9' at the Exchange Gallery Penzance, 2010. See www.anthonybryant.co.uk for greater detail.
