Brian Horton

Brian Horton studied Illustration and Fine Arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design from 1991-1994. After graduation he moved to LA to pursue his career. In his 13 years as a professional artist his clients include Disney, DreamWorks, Electronic Arts, Lucas Arts, DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics and many others.

In the fall of 2006, Brian began a personal project entitled 'SCARS', a series of portraits born out of the phenomenon of the MySpace community. The series explores the expression of identity, and the collective experiences, both positive and negative, that contribute to that image. The paintings are bold and iconic; the models exude power and engage the viewer. Each image is laced with artifacts or situations that have personal significance to the model, crafting a narrative that brings a deeper meaning to the portrait.
