Anthony Sims

Visit Anthony Sims’ Creator Profile & Drop

Anthony Sims is an American painter from Memphis, TN, living in Dallas, TX. Anthony’s artwork has been described as chaotic and brutal yet peaceful.In 2020 he became one of the youngest artists to ever be accepted into a physical museum’s permanent collection with two works in the Meridian Museum of Art. Anthony also created his own NFT museum, the “Sims NFT Museum,” that focuses on collecting New School Expressionist.

Anthony describes his own work as, “the one emotion I find myself going back to is the contemplation of my own death. But it’s not done in a dark way — that’s why I like the way my skeletons look. My skeletons aren’t scary; they’re calm looking, even among the chaos of bold colors and geometric figures. There are so many things that I want to talk about but I can’t, and so I paint.”

Here’s some insight into Anthony’s creative process in his own words:

Wu Wei — effortless action. My art is created not by me but through me. I interpret life and existence and let it flow naturally through my art. I do not know what I am going to create and occasionally I will have pools of color fill my imagination not making any form but just colors merging together. This is one core factor of my artistic inspiration.

I get these visions but not in the fairy tale way. Just if I close my eyes and have a strong feeling I can sometimes see certain colors and these colors are usually similar but the way they interact with each other is always different. Once I have this is when I paint. When I paint, I think of nothing. If I try to paint, I fail. If I get out of my own way and let the canvas come to life, I tend to get much cooler results.

Expressionism and Neo-Expressionism existed before the internet and these two time periods have inspired a generation of digital artists some of whom have never even picked up a paint brush. I call this genre of our current digital art renaissance, “New School Expressionism.”

This drop is a special one, consisting of only 4 individual 1-of-1 auctions. Notably, Anthony has recently sold his latest piece for 24 ETH.
