Oliver Norton grew up in Romania in a household where both parents were artists. At an early age, his mother was impressed with his mature use of shading. His subtle use of color continues to distinguish his work today.
After winning a local art contest, Norton was inspired to begin a formal art education once completing primary school. He majored in painting with a focus on landscape. Norton expanded his style to incorporate a fresh, modernist eye. Norton accomplished this fresh style through his gifted use of color, and his innovative use of shading and blurring.
Norton has exhibited his work in Atlanta and New York. His work is collected nationally.
