A Colorful Mind
Tony Kelly is a master of superlatives who loves to show anything but understatement – more of everything: more colour, more luxury and more joie de vivre. His world of imagery is sexy, extravagant and exciting. Like no other, Kelly imaginatively leads glamour to eroticism and playfully hides social roles and tabus behind a polished surface. With pop aesthetics, humour as well as flawless beauty and perfection he glamourosly, though relentlessly, reveals what moves the rich and famous.
His world of imagery is noted for its theatricals and spontaneity. With natural excitement and buzz he motivates his models, female and male, to leave their comfort zone. By unleashing his ravenous artistical energy, he succeeds in forming and shaping extravagant sets and environments with fanciful tableaus. A trace of irony can be found in his staged realities, which awards the artworks with humour and a certain kind of deepness, thereof viewing our common ideal of beauty and stereotypes with a wink.
