Born in England; Curtis Hooper was a child actor working at movie studios, before moving to the other side of the lens to become a professional cameraman.  There he began to formulate his concepts of visual logic, relentlessly searching for symmetry and harmony in his subjects, that his works dynamically reveal.    He is a master draughtsman and possesses a consummate design sense, utilizing the most contemporary methods as well as the long-forgotten techniques of the old masters, his work expressing the poetry and the thunder of the entire arts spectrum. Curtis has also been a professional photographer for most of his life and is currently putting together a show of his photographic works.


Curtis became a licensed pilot, scuba diver and sailor to explore his love of nature…and, to quench his thirst for knowledge, he avidly studies psychology, body language, science/quantum physics, religions, and philosophy. His canvases are deeply imbued with his diverse interests and exuberance for life, in all its complexity and symmetry.

“He is now one of the most successful portrait and figure painters in the world 
with commissions coming from celebrities, captains of industry, royalty and governments.”file://localhost/American%20Artist.pdf
