Tom Anholt

Tom Anholt (b. 1987, Bath, UK) is a scholar-stylist for today’s figurative painting. Anholt combs a galaxy of pictorial strategies to conjure a place both exotic and everyday, filtering modern life through a lens of art history, optical effects and florid allegory. In addition to 2018 and 2020 exhibitions at Josh Lilley, Anholt has been the subject of solo exhibitions at EIGEN + ART, Berlin and Leipzig; Hakgojae Gallery, Seoul; and Mikael Andersen, Copenhagen. The artist featured in the 2018 recent-painting survey KNOWN/UNKNOWNS at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

Tom Anholt lives and works in Berlin.
