Anthony McCarthy B 1974

Manchester based artist Anthony McCarthy's drawings are a detailed exploration of urban life in Manchester and Salford. Recent works depict Rylands library, Vinyl Exchange on Oldham Street, Lowry Art Centre Salford and Central Library. Anthony's use of pen and ink are utilised to build up lines and layers with each adding a depth and a unique quality to the individuality of the work. Anthony has an eye for detail; streets, buildings and architecture depicting Manchester are meticulously recreated in his distinct style onto paper.

Inspired by graphic design and printmaking having studied these techniques in detail while at university. Anthony's work has parallels with the work of L S Lowry. Given that he has worked with the Lowry collection of paintings and drawings for over ten years it is easy to see how he has been inspired. Like Lowry, the architecture in Anthony's drawings tower over any human activity; the everyday presents itself through a web of lines and intensive perspectives.
