Nicola Anthony (b.1984) makes sculpture which tells hidden stories and fills a space with truth and perspectives. As a result she has worked with unheard voices, minority groups and disenfranchised communities internationally - recently being invited to George Floyd Square to learn from the community in Minnesota.
In recent years she was appointed as artist-in-residence for the UK Government at the UK Pavilion in Dubai as part of an RSS commission, has completed three artist residencies, had a solo show at Singapore Art Museum, exhibited in the Kuala Lumpur Biennale, had public sculptures commissioned in Galway, London, Singapore, Colorado, Dublin, Yangon and Los Angeles, and been shortlisted for the Sovereign Art Prize. The pictured public sculpture features the story of a holocaust survivor and was made for Steven Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation in Los Angeles. The sculpture launched at the same time as the Hollywood re-release of his film Schindler's List during Nicola's time living in Los Angeles.
Nicola has been practicing for 16 years and created exhibitions and commissions for art institutions and cultural foundations in Singapore, Hong Kong, Myanmar, USA, UK, Indonesia and Malaysia. Fine Art alumni of Loughborough University and University of the Arts London, a member and trustee of Royal Society of Sculptors, fellow at Royal Society of Arts, and diversity champion throughout her art practice, research, and trusteeships.
