His work will be displayed in Castle Galleries.
Critically acclaimed artist Paul Horton will be unveiling an exhibition of his work at Castle Galleries in Bluewater shopping centre.
The painter will be appearing at the gallery on Saturday (December 5) between 1pm and 4pm to present his autumn collection - A Closer Look.
The collection will be shown alongside a range of his signed limited edition and original art from previous collections.
He will also unveil a never before seen mystery print at the show.
Mr Horton studied drawing and painting at Bournville School of Art before pursuing a career in the printing industry, as well as regularly selling and exhibiting his work.
He released his first collection with fine art publisher Washington Green in 2001.
He said: “Each and every work begins its life as a small sketch, a visual reference captured in a fleeting moment.
“I work from my imagination as much as possible and having chosen my subject matter I begin to work on the composition, and already have a strong idea in my mind of how the final work will look.
“I work on grey pastel paper and use a variety of high quality pastels, blending and drawing on the surface of the paper creating the vibrancy of colour and atmosphere inherent in my work.”
Peter Gilby, Gallery Manager for Bluewater’s Castle Galleries said: “Paul’s work is instantly recognisable and the fun and colourful nature of the pieces can be appreciated by all ages.
“His work has been a long-standing best seller for us, and we are honoured to be able to celebrate his achievements, career and the launch of his new collection here at the gallery.
“We have no doubt that this new collection will be as popular as ever. The meet the artist event is an ideal opportunity to talk to Paul and hear first-hand about the stories behind his pieces.”
The exhibition will run for two weeks.
