Background Information about Anton Sparx
Introduction
In his series Vanity, Anton Sparx examines the way diamonds reflect light and color. His dazzling artworks depict world-famous jewels. After it the champagne-colored Braganza was unearthed in Brazil in the 17th century, the King of Portugal had it imported to Lisbon. Napoleon invaded in 1807, and the gem has been missing ever since. But Sparx preserves its beauty for all eternity. At 41 carats, the Green Dresden is the largest natural green diamond in the world. The history of the priceless jewel can be traced back to 18th century London. It is now on display at Dresden Castle. Pink Dream, originally known as the Pink Star, is an exceptionally rare color diamond that was found in South Africa in one of the De Beers mines, in the late 90’s and it’s the largest Pink diamond ever found. The rarity of such gems makes them highly sought after by diamond lovers. The most mysterious yellow gem in the world is the Sun of Africa diamond, which weighs more than 127 carats. It was found in 2007, in the Kimberly mines of Africa, then transported to the Netherlands where it was cut and polished by the world’s top diamond craftsmen.

For these lenticulars, Anton Sparx layers multiple abstract digital paintings to create fascinating color interactions. Vanity refers to the concept of human self-reflection and all the exploration that entails. Sparx’s diamonds are hypnotizing in their magnificence, their shimmering beauty brings us under their spell.
