Biography   Walton Ford


Creating work that resembles John James Audubon's classic images of wildlife and birds, Walton Ford subverts them to narrative painting whereby he comments on contemporary society such as its desecration of nature.

He showed early art talent as a child who was raised in Croton in the suburbs of New York City.  His father was an art director for Time-Life.  As a teenager, Ford determined to be a herpetologist, and even, with his indulgent mother's knowledge, kept a five-foot black pilot snake in his closet, feeding it rats.

A major inspiration for his depiction of animals came from his grade-school reading of Audubon's Birds of America and from his realization that he could draw almost as well as Audubon.    ...  Displaying 750 of 1290 characters.
