Thomas Anfield is a tenacious explorer who first rose to national prominence in the early 80s as street artist Pablo Fiasco. He has exhibited his paintings internationally and his performance company Butoh-A-Go-Go has performed in Moscow at the invitation of the Moscow Ballet and were featured performers with Fuse at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Drawing inspiration from his own engagement with dance and music, Anfield’s Splash contribution celebrates the collaborative process and the inclusivity and universal opportunity of which Arts Umbrella is so exemplary.
