Horace Panter Biography


Early Life

Born in Croydon in 1953 as Stephen Graham Panter, Horace Panter began his career as an artist – and musician – during his time at Coventry University (formerly Lanchester Polytechnic). In 1975, he graduated with a BA in Fine Art and has continued creating art ever since, despite being most famous for his career as a bassist in 'The Specials’ – a British punk/ska band.

Horace’s artwork is strongly influenced by the Pop Art genre pioneered by Andy Warhol and the depictions of light captured in paintings by artist David Hockney.

Horace Panter has created several art collections throughout his career, including:
 
  • Cassettes
  • Americana
  • Japanese
  • Beano
  • Pop Art
