22nd May 2020 Paul Horton announces that from the special limited edition ‘A Better Day’ all 250 copies have ‘sold out’ to galleries and combined with his sale of the original painting, raises an amazing £16,000 for NHS Charities Together & their 'Covid-19 Urgent Appeal' - well done Paul!
The 7th May 2020 sees Paul Horton release a charity edition of (what was initially) 100 prints called 'A Better Day,' from which £50.00 per sale will be donated to NHS charities to support workers during the Covid-19 Crisis - swiftly selling out to galleries with one hour, the edition is extended (before going to print) to 250 copies in order to meet unprecedented demand from art buyers!
**Showcase of Paul's art set to Liam Blake's 'Heart & Soul' music track (2012):
Late November 2019 sees the release of the almost annual Paul Horton Christmas limited editions: 'Love Is All Around' featuring favourite Horton elements of The Snowman, the Purple House, the in love couple and the lovely little bridge; rumour has it there will be another new one in December...fingers crossed!
The 'Secrets Of The Seasons' was a mini-series of limited editions within his 2019 releases and has proved immensely popular; so much so that November 2019 sees the release of an upright mounted and framed 'Secrets of the Seasons' - on paper version (quadriptych) - your last chance before the whole range sells out!
9th September 2016 saw the release of Paul's last collection with Washington Green Fine Art publishers called 'The So Far So Good - Collection' - five stunning limited editions and the small print 'Imaginarium' was given as a free gift to any collector for a limited time.
**Paul discusses his Spring Limited Edition releases 2019:
Although Paul has been painting his entire life, it was not until late 1997 that he finally became a professional artist and his focus became purely on art. The following year he staged a retrospective exhibition called 'All In A Life's Work’ and this featured hand selected paintings he felt represented his artistic journey up until that point.
His painting ‘Passengers’ was of special significance, as it was the first time he had combined one of his characters within a street scene backdrop and marked a turning point in Horton’s art. Ultimately all his paintings from then on was based on what he saw as ‘street life,’ either people’s current daily lives or reflecting on Britain’s past industrial age. (Incidentally, many published British artists like to look to the past within their limited editions prints: Alexander Millar, Leigh Lambert & Mackenzie Thorpe spring to mind)
The ‘working man’ character that appears in many of his industrial limited editions does reflect a bygone era but he says could equally be any town or city today.
Having lived his informative years in Birmingham (UK) in the 1960s & 70s, this gave Horton rich memories to draw on that he feels both defines him as a person and gave him a robust work ethic. As many of you know when Paul goes on tours to galleries, his number of appearance is larger than any of his contemporaries!
Paul Horton’s iconic ‘Homes & Hearts’ tour from 2002 was memorable for him as it effectively launched him to UK Galleries and customers. He absolutely loved meeting the public and continues to draw huge artistic inspiration from such gallery appearances.
