Tony Abraham studied art in London and joined the marketing communications agency J. Walter Thompson in the early 1960s. progressing to become Art Director and later Creative Director and Chairman of a subsidiary.
Over the past 35 years, he developed internationally recognised art campaigns and packaging designs for dozens of companies, including Guiness, Ferrero Rocher, Kellogg’s (the ‘monkey’ image on Coco Pops), Unilever’s ‘Denim’ aftershave, and Braun Shaver images.
Abraham’s works are on permanent display at the Museum of Brands Packaging and Advertising in Notting Hill and are represented at the Attic Gallery, London.
After leaving J. Walters Thompson Abraham began painting and drawing in various media, from acrylic and oil to watercolour and charcoal. His works range from figurative to abstract and reflect his international travels and admiration for artists such as David Hockney, Francis Bacon and Pablo Picasso.
The artist was so excited at the prospect of exhibiting at the Club but sadly passed away unexpectedly on 4 April 2016. Tony’s family decided to proceed with this exhibition, with help from his close friends and colleagues in the art world.
