Anthony Breslin - Nup to the Cup!
Anthony's deep love for all animals can be seen throughout his art over his career, and horses hold an extra-special place in his heart.
The partnership with the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses (CPR) came about in a beautifully organic fashion through a chance meeting.Anthony, a pacifist and animal lover, immediately said yes to having his art being used to help spread the word about the plight of racehorses.
This led to a collaboration that now sees his colourful but sophisticated art being used to spread the word about the importance of having fun, but not at the expense of any animals.
His stunning horse head series are the heros of the NTTC 2022 campaign and will be used in an ongoing collaboration with CPR.

In a momentous ‘tour de force’ Anthony Breslin presents his first major solo exhibition in over a decade. Overcoming years of crippling health challenges, Breslin returns with artistic explorations that will leave young and old visitors spellbound.
Merging together never before exhibited early surrealist works with new paintings, art installations and interactive ‘art games', the exhibition playfully invites viewers to immerse themselves as they explore this extraordinary melange of colour, form, and composition.
Anthony Breslin is a Melbourne-based, award-winning artist of national and international renown. He has produced over 50 exhibitions, an art opera, and published several books.
Currently, his studio resides at Burrinja.
'Before The Melange'
Anthony Breslin presents Before the Melange in a fundraiser collaboration with Space2b.
A multi-award-winning artist of international renown, Breslin’s works have shown nationally and around the world in over 50 exhibitions. Before the Melange will be an intimate show which pays tribute to the time Breslin spent growing up in St Kilda and forging his career in local studios.
Held in the lead up to his major solo show Melange at Burrinja Cultural Centre in October 2022, Before the Melange will feature a refined curation of works including captivating new large-scale compositions, limited edition prints of his latest stunning horse head series, and original works on bespoke wooden frame panels.
Breslin’s life-long support of community and longstanding collaborative relationship with Space2b is the inspiration behind this show. Proceeds from the exhibition launch will be donated to Space2Fly; a mentorship program which offers creative and business development and support in building language skills to newly arrived migrants and refugees, enabling them to become creative business owners. The launch event will be catered for with delicious drinks and food platters by Flavours of Syria, a café adjacent to Space2b run by Syrian asylum seeker Nayran Tabiei and family.
