The artwork of Yorkshire Artist Tony Dexter

I’ve a degree in fine art and my paintings reflect and are influenced by various subjects. I paint in a semi-realistic, colourful and vibrant way, choosing angles and topics that present you with a distinctive and contemporary view.

My themes include fairgrounds, people, trees, boats, beaches and fish. Some of my work is based on Filey and Filey Coble boats along with inspiration from Uig (Isle of Lewis), Mull, Iona and the Yokshire Dales.

The Unpainted Boat

I’ve exhibited at the Great North Art Show (Ripon), several times at Art in the Pen (Skipton), Stephen Joseph Theatre Gallery (Scarborough) [one man show], Neil’s Gallery (Filey), The Gallery at the Art Shop (Ilkley) and as a member of Craven Arts. Many of my paintings are also sold directly from the website.

I use acrylic paint on canvas that is varnished to create a fantastically colourful and bold finish. My paintings are generally on block canvas, which means they don’t need framing and the majority are sized at 30″ x 30″ (76 x 76cm) – a dimension ideal for today’s contemporary home. The work is labelled, signed and strung ready for hanging


I’d like to believe that my work is interesting and visibly distinctive and I hope you like it!
