Throughout his career, self taught Yorkshire based painter Tony South has portrayed English daily life with a unique sense of humor. His portraits of animal subjects with a heavy metal streak are depicted in common day scenes like drinking tea and reading the morning newspaper. South's painting style has been described as "Rockwellian", referring to illustrator Norman Rockwell who painted detailed idyllic scenes of American life. South paints from life with similar realism, building a playful and surreal narrative from his social observations.
