Horace Panter

Artist Biography

An interview with Horace Panter before his exhibition at The White Room Gallery in 2012

Horace Panter studied Fine Art in Coventry in 1975; while there, he met fellow art student Jerry Dammers with whom he co-founded the 2-Tone music label and ska band The Specials. Although most of Panter's career has been defined by his involvement in music, art has always been in the frame and he has avidly collected art books and prints from all over the world on tour with the band.

Significant influences in Panter's work range from the naïve stylised jungles of Henri Rousseau to the Pop Art paraphernalia of Peter Blake and, most notably, the long tradition of iconography in religion, politics and advertising. In creating contemporary iconography, Panter aims to question the narrative of the icon by reproducing and questioning its status and authority in a post-modern setting.
