Biography



 
John Burton is an award-winning oil painter best known for his stirring and vivid depictions of the transitory beauty of our ever-changing world. He is at once tangibly influenced by the Western and Russian painters of the early twentieth century, and entirely unique in his remarkable ability to capture the profound spirituality and majesty of his surroundings. Burton has traveled and painted around the globe, always maintaining his home and artistic center in the American West. Burton’s deep American roots permeate the rich, natural character of his art, and inform his work’s reverent tone.
