This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Artist John Burton is a graduate of Arizona State University and the Academy of Art in San Francisco. The artist won the top award at the 2003 Oil Painters of America show and competition in Taos, New Mexico and an award of excellence at the 2004 show.

Burton was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but moved to Los Altos, California at the age of two. Burton always wanted to be an artist and when he was in fifth grade he broke his back and spent his recovery drawing and sketching. He attended Arizona State University but, feeling the art program was lacking he earned a degree in business and marketing. He went on to work as a graphic artist for six years after graduation.

It wasn't until he enrolled in San Francisco's Academy of Art that he renewed his passion for painting. Burton has also studied at the Scottsdale Artists School were he was encouraged by his mentors; Scott Burdick, Bill Sanchez and Dan Gerhartz.

Burton, who enjoys painting figurative work of people in their natural surroundings, is attempting to preserve the quickly disappearing cultures of the world through his art. The artist also enjoys painting in a variety of styles from old Russian masters to contemporary drip paintings. His subjects range from figure and still life to the abstract.

John Burton teaches at the Scottsdale Artist School and is co-founder of the Art of Triumph, an organization that promotes the work of artists with disabilities.
