About the Artist
Anthony Surratt is an abstract artist who works primarily in acrylics and mixed media and derives distinct inspiration from the aesthetics of Midcentury Modern art, architecture and design.
While he adds many layers of texture, media and color to his paintings, it is frequently via methods of subtraction—sanding, scraping, wiping, gouging—that their ultimate stories and meanings emerge.
Before he was a full-time artist, Surratt worked as a corporate communications and public relations executive for over 25 years, mostly in cable TV and telecom.
Surratt’s paintings have been exhibited throughout New England and Georgia and in online exhibitions. He serves on the board of directors of Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning and is an active volunteer and artist member at Southern Vermont Arts Center. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mass communication from Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana, and a certificate in interior design from Parsons School of Design in New York City.
