Inspirational art direct from artist's venues throughout the Peterborough area

Tony Nero

 

My work is very diverse in subject matter and I work in a variety of mediums such as pencils, charcoal, pastels, oils and watercolour. The majority of my art being self-taught but I also undertook some formal fine arts training at the London Guildhall University.

Originally trained as a graphic designer, I worked in the music industry producing record sleeves and printed materials for a period that exceeded 20 years. Almost half of this time spent managing my own graphic studio.

 

Since my first solo exhibition in 2008 I have been showing my work regularly and is pro-active in promoting and documenting local art in Peterborough. As well as producing a small quarterly newsletter, I am also an active committee member of two local art groups.

 

My most recent solo exhibitions, both in 2017, ‘Pieces of a Dream 2’ held at the Stamford Arts Centre in April and ‘This Is Me’ held at the Norman Cross Gallery in September to October and was opened by Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya and visited by poet Benjamin Zephaniah. Elated to have sold piece of my work to world premier percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie

Up coming exhibitions, includes, Heritage Spaces and Places, (a collection of drawings) in September. Nero’s Retrospective, (a collection of photographs over 10 years) at the Undercroft in October & ESC Artists exhibition in Stamford, also in October.
