Horace Panter

Born in Croydon in 1953 and graduating in 1975 with an art degree from Coventry’s ‘Lanchester Polytechnic’, much of his practice to date has been based on figurative work influenced by traditional forms of iconography infused with a Pop Art sensibility. He cites his influences as Peter Blake, Wayne Thiebaud and Joseph Cornell as well as the naive style of Henri Rousseau. His recent ‘Americana’ series, paintings of street signs and diners, relate back to his adolescent years when he was heavily influenced by American cultural exports in terms of art, music and literature with artists like Edward Hopper and Alan D’Arcangelo. What is left out of the painting is as considered as what is included, making them highly stylized motifs of the American cityscape.
