GIFT ANTONYO (*1980)

Biography

 

Gift Antonyo has worked as an assistant and student to Arthur Fata; and from this master he has acquired many highly professional skills, and also the very important one of only creating original sculptures, exploring his own talent and expressing it in new ways, rather than trying to walk directly in his master’s footsteps.

Square-formed heads on top of each other are uniquely Gift’s style, original and humorous.  

Baboons in groups, climbing on top of each other, playing or simply holding each other tight in order to protect, also inhabit his world. They have their own distinct facial expression, no doubt you are in the company of monkeys, but you can also recognize that they are unique Baboons, created by Gift Antonyo.
