Phil Toledano

I was born in 1968 in London, to a French Moroccan mother and an American father.

I have a BA in English literature. My art education came from my father, who was a full time artist.

Here's another one from 'days with my father' my lovely beautiful dad-love is the thing, really @mrtoledano

It would be fair to say that I learned by osmosis.

I consider myself a conceptual artist: Everything starts with an idea, and the idea determines the execution.

Consequently, my work varies in medium, from photography to installation, sculpture and painting. The themes of my work are primarily socio-political, although lately I’ve strayed into the deeply personal.
