Portfolio | The Crushing art of Anthony Ventura

In your face

Discovering the work of Canadian illustrator Anthony Ventura for the first time is a bit like getting punched in the face. You don’t expect it, and it knocks you out. Anthony’s work is just like that: unpredictable, improbable, powerful and surprising. There is a trashy and mythological side to this world-awarded artist’s style that I particularly appreciate. Finally, Anthony is best described by author Dan McPherson, for whom designed the cover of his book “Booze, an advice to an unborn egg“: ”

“Take break from the norm and roll through his bizarre world of femme fatales, chicken slurping whack jobs and mythological beasts of bourbon. A trip into the world of Anthony Ventura is a memorable one, bringing you through pop culture, horror and earth grounded fantasy turned Greek tragedy. It’s a phenomenal journey, but take a pack of sandwiches with you; …and maybe a rather large hunting knife.”
