Harry Walton's Gallery   -   Artist Biography


My fine art paintings are an extension of my work in the motion picture industry, particularly in the discipline of Matte Painting where the matte artist has to create environments that look absolutely real on film. I bring all my knowledge from animation, visual effects, cinematography and matte artistry into the fine art field.
