Artist Barry Hilton - All art work available, originals. Barry Hilton was born in Manchester in 1941. Whilst having no formal training, Barry moved to Cornwall in 1979 where the experience of working alongside a group of extremely active artists helped in the development of his artistic abilities. Barry Hilton's is a story of continuing development - he was told that "selling and success are synonymous" - should this be true, then he can certainly be called "successful".
Barry Hilton's love of nostalgia which he captures so well in his paintings of Gas Lit street and marine scenes are much sought after and are well represented in private galleries throughout the UK.
However, refusing to be stereotyped, Barry Hilton has recently had considerable success with beach scenes and still life, painted in a very modern, contemporary style.
