About Tony Nero

Originally from St Vincent in the Caribbean, I trained as a graphic designer in London and worked in the music industry producing record sleeves, posters and magazines for a period that exceeded 20 years. Part of this time was spent running my own graphic studio.

As a child I enjoyed art and while attending secondary school in London I was encouraged by my art teachers. Over the years my passion for art has grown and being  inspired by nature, people, surrealism, life and other artists, I love to paint just about anything. I also love the effect of light and dark and often love to work while listening to music. Learning all the time while trying to improve my work and hoping to evoke something in the viewer.

The majority of my art being self-taught but I also undertook some formal fine arts training at the London Guildhall University. I first displayed my work at the former Peterborough Art House and I had my first solo exhibition in Peterborough in 2008. Pieces of my work are now held in homes and private collections across the world. I am very proactive in promoting local art in Peterborough. I am also on the committee of two local art groups.

My past works included local dignitaries such as three Mayors, Councillors, the CEO of  the council and even the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire. I have also been very active in promoting Black History Month and Diversity in Peterborough. One of my biggest achievements to date was showing my Black Heroes collection of portraits in an  exhibition at Wembley Stadium.

My Practice: In some of my work, I pursue my fascination with ‘Absence of Presence’. The simple concept where we are able to see something that‘s no longer there, or visualise  what used to be. I try to capture this concept in my work by using marks and colours, also leaving out certain features in order to add depth and encourage creativity in the viewer. The abstract nature of my work encourages a sense of excitement of not knowing what will happen with each stroke, and the secret of the final image is to decide what not to include.
