Tony Heaton is a sculptor who works in a variety of materials including discarded objects which he revisits and reinvents often to inform themes around disability and identity. Conscious of how he is perceived as a disabled person, Heaton describes his art making as playful explorations of the meaning found in everyday interactions. Tony has exhibited nationally and internationally. His sculpture, Gold Lamé, recently occupied The Liverpool Plinth and is now in the Riverside Museum, Glasgow, and his ‘Monument to the Unintended Performer’ was installed on the Big 4 at the entrance to Channel 4 TV Centre in celebration of the London 2012 Paralympics. His sculpture ‘Squareinthecircle?’ is situated outside the school of architecture, Portsmouth University.

Tony took part in sport at Stoke Mandeville and has played wheelchair basketball for England.
