Anthony Suber

Anthony Suber’s sculptures, soundscapes, and mixed media works engage a type of Folk-Afrofuturist ethos that is not only responsive to legacy and ritual, but inherently incumbent upon them.” – Juror Dr. Anita Bateman, Associate Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Texas native Anthony Suber is a Southern based multimedia artist who defines himself as an American visual griot. His work is derived from his personal perspective and experience of spirituality, cross-generational relationships, history, and narratives he heard as a child. Suber is a graduate of the University of Houston with a BFA in studio art and also has an MFA from Houston Baptist University. Outside of his studio practice, Suber has served almost two decades as a fine arts educator in Texas. 

“Child-like exploration, anthropological discovery, and mysticism are the thread that stitches Suber’s  work together. Through re-interpreting language and movement, reference of living elements, and iconography from the African diaspora, he explores ways to preserve what has been (history) while highlighting our connections to the now (present) and what can be (future).”
