Gary Walton discovered a natural gift for painting at an early age, excelling at all things creative throughout his school years. His remarkable technical ability lead to a successful career in graphic design, where he continued to hone his draughtsmanship. At first painting only in his spare time, Walton’s unique style gradually developed into the instantly recognisable works of today.
Influenced by the surrealist paintings of Salvador Dali, Walton’s paintings depict ethereal scenes, blurring the line between dream and reality. Many of his works in fact start life as dreams; images seen in his sleep are translated onto canvas with astonishing clarity.
Despite having resided inland over recent years, Walton’s affection for the coast is evident in many of his works, with boats, beach huts and lighthouses a recurring motif. Whimsical buildings inhabit the rolling hills of his landscapes, providing both the audience and artist with a means to escape to his fantastical locations.
Since becoming a full- time artist Walton’s style has continued to develop, with an ever- growing army of collectors relishing each new collection.
