Barry was born in Manchester in 1941, Although painting and drawing always played a crucial role in his life,

Barry Hilton is one of the UK’s most enduringly successful artists. His celebrated landscapes use bold blocks of colour and dramatic textural juxtapositions., while his more muted harbour scenes have an understated but no less intense impact. His smooth, finely painted skies contrast with the heavy impasto techniques of the land as it appears in his highly coloured foreground. Barry’s greatest sources of inspiration are the moorland, rivers and harbours around his home in the north of England. He can actually identify the moment at which his distinctive style was born. “That started some years back. I spend a lot of time in the countryside and I can remember when rapeseed came in and I saw a field of incredible yellow flowers against a black, stormy sky. I’ve never lost that image and the concept really infiltrated my imagination. This contrast between light and dark, calm and storm, is absolutely central to every piece I paint.”
