Tony Taylor


Tony graduated in Fine Art from Leicester Polytechnic in 1973; there he had the good fortune to be under the tutelage of Gavin Bryars, with whom he shared a great interest in the Fluxus movement, George Brecht, Zen, Chess and five-a-side football.

Emerging with a healthy spirit of inquiry, he subsequently exhibited at the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and at Paul Smith's Pushpin Gallery in Nottingham. Thereafter, he became involved in machine embroidery and its industrial application, but with the spirit of enquiry intact.

Having periodically worked with artists over the last fourteen years, most notably Grayson Perry, He decided to examine more closely the possibilities of applying embroidery in the area of Fine Art and elevating its status beyond that of a humble though admirable craft.
