Born in Brighton, Anton studied painting and sculpture at St Martin's School of Art, London. As a child he lived in Malaysia, and visited both West Africa and India.  After selection in 1967 as a 'Young Contemporary at the Tate' he began exhibited across the UK, in London and the South West.

Working as a freelance architectural designer he worked in Paris, Italy, London and also taught printmaking at Croydon College. Upon moving to Cornwall he settled at St Ives in 1994, turning a Methodist Sunday school into a dual living and working space. His work is often quirky and explorative of historical and literary concept, and he constructs much of his work from ephemera, creating thought-provoking pieces, often within boxes.
