- Anthony Thornton is an American poet, archetype and muse living and working in New York.
- Thornton's written and painted works plod through worlds clandestine and mundane, splendid and abject, erudite and stupid. His forthcoming chapbook, New Directions, is a breathless plunge into the chthonic abyss of the poète maudit.
- He has sat for Marco Anelli, Scott Hug, Matthia Hamann, and Robert Melee, and has appeared in K-48 and Beauty Today.
- Thornton has read at numerous venues (Starr Space, Strange Loop Gallery, The Spectrum, Envoy Enterprises, CULTUREfix) and private functions.
