An occupation of Panter's alongside his performing with The Specials is art. He has been a professional artist since 2010 and has exhibited throughout the UK. His work is based on traditional forms of iconography fused with the sensibilities of British Pop Art.
Born in Croydon in 1953, Horace Panter graduated from Lanchester Polytechnic (now Coventry University) with a BA in Fine Art in 1972. Whilst there, he met Jerry Dammers and, together with Lynval Golding, he founded ‘The Specials’. Although better known as a musician, Horace has always kept up with his art practice, gradually moving away from the ethos of ‘art language’ to return to painting, influenced by the artists he had first encountered as a child of the 60s: Warhol, Lichenstein, Rauschenburg, Hopper, Blake, Rousseau.
