Barry was born in Manchester in 1941, Although painting and drawing always played a crucial role in his life,

Barry Hilton is one of the UK’s most enduringly successful artists. His celebrated landscapes use bold blocks of colour and dramatic textural juxtapositions., while his more muted harbour scenes have an understated but no less intense impact. His smooth, finely painted skies contrast with the heavy impasto techniques of the land as it appears in his highly coloured foreground. 

His formal training was in design - he achieved a first class B.A.(Hons) degree in Ceramics and Tableware Design. It was not until he moved to Cornwall in 1979 that he first thought of painting as a possible profession. Here he entered a period of his life that had a profound influence on the remainder of his artistic career, meeting and working alongside a group of extremely active artists which led to considerable development of his artistic abilities.
