Feroze Antia was born in Bombay, India and studied mathematics before moving to London to complete his PhD. He recently retired from teaching mathematics in East London. He lives in London and Bangkok. Feroze has no formal qualifications in Art but has had a great love for it since childhood. Between 1998 and 2003 he concentrated on COLLAGE (available on request) and developed a unique style of depicting landscapes. Then till 2008 he worked in oils (non currently available) mainly interested in architectural landscapes of London. In 2010 he moved to Thailand and started painting in watercolour, a medium he now loves but still finds very unpredictable and challenging. In 2017 he returned to the UK and continues to travel and paint for leisure.
His love of vibrant colour and the sensuous layering of paint became his new mode of expression in oils, but the unpredictability of watercolour has led to a more subdued style and colour. He sometimes works plain air, but prefers to translates photographs taken on location to construct his striking compositions.
Feroze paints for pleasure and relaxation, but most of his paintings are for sale. He has shown his works at The Alex (Bethnal Green, London), Forty Hall (Enfield, London), London Artist Book Fair (ICA – The Mall, London), All Saints Church (London), The Station Cafe (London), Starfish (London), Anthony Webb (London) as well as Jamjuri Gallery (Bangkok) and Wangna Art Gallery (Bangkok)
