Anthony Liggins

Anthony Liggins is an Atlanta-Miami based artist with global reach who is looking to expand his concept. He has been creating exquisite pieces of art for over two decades and has held twelve major group museum showings in the US and Europe at some of the most highly regarded and sought after venues: the Smithsonian Institute, Oakland Museum, Longmont Museum, Michener Art Museum, and the Museo Americano. Anthony Liggins works, an extension of the man himself, can be found in major galleries internationally: Istanbul, Philadelphia, South of France, Bogota, Colombia, and Atlanta. His pieces are present in 700 public and private collections around the world and have been featured and published in publications such as: Condé Nast, Ocean Drive Magazine, Interview Magazine, Nice-Marti in France, Philadelphia Inquire, Miami Home and Décor, Florida Design Magazine, The Atlantan Magazine, Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles, Le Petit Nicois Journal in Ville Franche, France, and many more.

 

He believes in the potential for his art to act as an unspoken language that connects people together. The paintings represent a spiritual journey of the enlightened mind, heart and spirit. Liggins finds joy and freedom in making art that can create personal connections with people who share his passion for life. He is an abstract expressionist influenced by world cultures, rhythms of music, and emotions of dance. His mixed media paintings are bright and colorful works that include three dimensional objects, plexiglas, yarn, ebony wood and deep layers. Liggins soulful work connects with the viewer and exudes a particular passion that can be felt by kindred spirits.
