About Anthony Sims
Anthony Sims' bold, chaotic expressions resurrect Mississippi's delta blues, refined by street culture and American Hip-Hop. Born in Southaven, Mississippi, and now based in Dallas, Texas, the self-taught artist displayed his art at the Brooks Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, when he was 18. Sims' work is known for having vivid background imagery, monstrous figurative characters, warm toned patches, and articulate lines of poetry. By the age of 21, Anthony had two of his paintings accepted into the Meridian Museum of Art's permanent collection. In 2021, Anthony gained media headlines through the creation of animated NFT's with the most well known animation and painting, "Not Sure About Myself, I Am Certain," which sold for $99k in a primary sale. Anthony has exhibited around the US with shows in Memphis, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Austin. Sims displayed artworks internationally with shows in Ontario, London, and Mexico City. Sims makes raw, unfiltered figurative paintings that capture life from the eyes of a bi-racial, Southern American who seeks greater purpose and desires to overcome adversity regardless of the circumstances.
