GILTROW, Anthony

1948 - ?

Born at Wood Green, London, in 1948, son of Arthur C. W. Giltrow and his wife Julia Irene née Evans (1926-1993), who married at Edmonton in 1947. He moved to Suffolk in 1979 and at sometime lived at 197 Church Road, Lowestoft. He had no formal art training but his interest in painting was re-kindled on a school trip when I saw 'Time Transfixed' by Rene Magritte. Even so it was a year or two before I started to paint. One day in 1969 I bought a box of oil paints, some pieces of hardboard, got a book on painting from the library and started to paint in my spare time. He married Carol Wilson and their daughter is Rebeccah Giltrow [q.v.] and in 1979 moved to Suffolk, he had stopped painting for a number of years, but resumed about the turn of the century. Anthony works mainly in oil, but is interested in collage in all it's forms and his view of the world is as a fractured and dis-jointed place which is often reflected in his work which is produced in a variety of styles. In recent years his work has started to go in different directions, and with different mediums. His work has been exhibited at Haringey Arts Centre; Walthamstow Art Society Open Exhibition; Halesworth Art Gallery; The Ferini Gallery, Pakefield; The Lowestoft Arts Centre; Kessingland Library and The Coconut Loft, Lowestoft, as well as at various mixed and group shows. Anthony also did the illustrations for the 'Lily and Hudson' series in the Kessingland Times'.
