    Sometimes life throws a wrench into our comfy plans and we’re faced with some big questions. As an artist, the question often is – do I quit and accept the defeat? Or, do I rise up triumphantly and make something beautiful to recapture this moment? Anthony Hurd is an artist that has learned to embrace the surprises in life as well as in his work, creating images that seem to arrive to us from some distant land. He depicts psychedelic landscapes of perilous beauty.

    From his studio in the southwest plains of Texas, Hurd is currently busy creating works from a source of “dark optimism.” His free-flowing process reflects the unfettered nature of the work he creates. In the exclusive interview on our blog, Hurd discusses the evolution of his process and the difficulties he has faced in his journey. Read more.

    So humbled to be featured by a magazine who I’ve been admiring for so many years.. Have a look/read of my interview now on Hi-fructose!
