Anthony Asael's biography

Anthony Asael (born 1974 in Belgium) is a well recognized international photographer and one of the very few person who visited each one of the 192 countries of the world. He is of Turkish and Italian origin.

His passion for photography began very early - at 7 years old, he was already developing his black and white work in a lab. Over the next few years, he was given the opportunity to travel on several occasions with Ruggero Gabbai – a professional Italian photographer and film director - as his personal assistant.

Today, Anthony enjoys seeing passerby examine his portraits with delight, such as his famous expositions of “Colors and Scents” , "The 8 Millennium Goals", "Children Rights" and "Know your World". His artwork is featured in many different continents around the world. He has featured in 2006-2008 an exhibition on the Millennium Goals in Brussels, Milan (Italy), Antwerp (Belgium), Toronto (Canada), New York and Santiago (Chile) for the 60th anniversary of the Unicef. Other recent exhibitions can be seen in Brussels, Paris, Madrid, Cologne, Toronto, New-York.

A graduate of Solvay Business School in Belgium, he held management positions at various IT and telecommunication companies. In 2004 he decided to change life and he’s been dedicating 100% of his time to the nonprofit sector. He founded Art in All of Us [1] and is now dedicated to accomplishing the mission of this organization, aiming at stimulating creativity and curiosity of children. Having traveled throughout the world and met different cultures, Anthony aims at building more tolerance through ARTistic communication.
He wants Art in All of Us [2] to be the international platform of art exchanges among children from all the countries of the world. The mission of Art in All of Us is to promote tolerance and creative cultural exchange throughout the 192 UN listed countries, using universal language of Art. Anthony believes that the construction of a better and fair world needs to go through the education of the less advantaged person.

Therefore, Art in All of Us decided to focus the project on children, since in most countries they are only considered as half a person, and do not benefit from the right to express themselves. The expected AiA World Art Book Program of Art in All of Us have been published and launched the 20 of November 2009 at the United Nations in the frame of the 20 years anniversary of the Children Rights Convention. It presents in one book each and every of the 192 UN-member countries through a single portrait of a resident, a drawing and a poetry done by a local child.

Today, he is one of the very few persons who has traveled to all the 192 countries in the world and has taught photography to over 18,000 children in 320 schools thanks to Art in All of Us partnerships like with the UNICEF. or SOS Children Villages.

He and Art in All of Us has also be honored by being invited by the UNICEF to exhibit in the UNICEF headquarters for the 20 years anniversary of the Children Rights Convention. In 2009, he also won the first Prize of the Kodak Smile Festival in Paris.
