Anthony Hurd was born is Kansas City, Missouri and raised on skateboard culture. His art career would start a couple of decades later, after years spent in the entertainment industry doing advertising and freelance work. The freelance jobs allowed Hurd to get back into painting and explore his creative process again. A series of tragedies; the passing of his little sister, the end of his 18 year relationship and various hard truths that came to that end, shook his foundation and tore apart his identity, allowing him the opportunity to start a new. Anthony describes his work as a selfish endeavor of exploring his own personal demons and understanding the ever-changing landscapes of life.
