Who is Antony Gormley?

Antony is a 69-year-old sculptor. He was born on August 30th, 1950 in London.

On his website, the sculptor writes that his art is inspired by the “critical engagement with both his own body and those of others”, as well as how “human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos”.

Between 1968 and 1971, Antony studied at the University of Cambridge’s Trinity College. In addition, he completed a postgraduate course in sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Art in London (1977-79).

Back in 2008, The Daily Telegraph placed Antony on number 4 as part of their ‘100 most powerful people in British culture’ ranking.
