About The Artist

"Anton Pulvirenti is a Sydney based artist who specialises in pencil, pastel and ink. Anton's work usually draws on family history and photography for its subject matter. However, direct observation is the most central aspect of Anton's practice. This can be seen especially in the suite of drawings made during the 2012 total eclipse in Cairns, from which the print 'Totality' derives. Anton has exhibited in Korea, Italy, Qatar, New Zealand and Australia. Anton is also a Maddonnari, or pavement artist. He recently competed in the Grazie Madonnari Chalk Festival in Northern Italy in August this year. Anton is also completing a PhD at Sydney University."

Here are some examples of Anton's public and commissioned art.


In drawing 'Totality,' Anton explored the topic and made several original drawings as a study of the topic - all similar but all a little different or from different perspective viewpoints. Anton was particularly inspired by the fact that this subject matter gave him the the opportunity to explore his favourite subject (people) in the context of a great landscape with a spectacular natural event Here is the last drawing in the series which he has simply called totality.
