Horace Panter Art

Horace Panter - Artist, Bass Player "Sir Horace Gentleman"

Horace’s influences are diverse and range from the Pop Art paraphernalia of artists such as Peter Blake, Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana to the depictions of light in paintings by Edward Hopper and David Hockney. Although most of his career has been defined by music (as the bass player in The Specials), Horace graduated in 1975 with a degree in Fine Art from what was then called the ‘Lanchester Polytechnic’ in Coventry (now Coventry University). It was there that he first met Jerry Dammers and the concept of the punk/ska band materialised. He has been exhibiting in the UK since 2009 and in 2015 exhibited his work in Los Angeles and New York for the first time.
