BURTON (MARY ANNE) WAS BORN IN BUFFALO, NEW YORK, THE DAUGHTER OF POLISH IMMIGRANTS.  SHE HAS LIVED IN MEXICO CITY SINCE 1979.

 

 

 

 SHE IS A SELF TAUGHT ARTIST WHO ONLY RECENTLY AT THE AGE OF 40 BEGAN HER PROFESIONAL PAINTING CAREER PURELY BY ACCIDENT....WHEN SHE PAINTED A POPART COMIC BILLBOARD FOR HER BOUTIQUE IN POLANCO, THAT WAS SUCH A HUGE SUCCESS THAT MANY DISTINGUISHED ART COLLECTORS STARTED ORDERING PAINTINGS FROM HER.

 

 

 

 BORN WITH A NATURAL CREATIVE RESTLESSNESS,  THROUGH HER NEW PAINTING CAREER HAS FOUND SO MUCH SATISFACTION AND HAPPINESS THAT SHE PAINTS EVERDYDAY AND EVEN ON SUNDAYS AND FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS HAS BEEN CREATING GIANT BRIGHT FLIRTY PERFECTLY PAINTED POPART FOR HER DISTINGUISHED CLIENTS IN MEXICO CITY AND  ABROAD. 

 

 

 

ALTHOUGH POPART IS NOT NEW..... IT WAS INTRODUCED IN THE 50´S BY MANY FABULOUS AMERICAN AND ENGLISH ARTISTS........SHE CLAIMS SHE IS CREATING NEW POPART PAINTINGS FOR A WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF HUNGRY FANS WHO NEED MORE UPDATED IMAGES.

 

 

 

 BEST KNOWN IN MEXICO CITY, WHERE SHE LIVES AND WORKS, AS ¨THE MOTHER OF THE POPART REVOLUTION¨.  TRADITIONAL ART GALLERIES WHO REJECTED HER FLIRTY , SENSUAL GIANT CANVASES AT FIRST ARE APPLAUDING HER EFFORTS NOW AND FLOCKING TO REPRESENT HER.  HER PAINTINGS HAVE BEEN SO WIDELY ACCEPTED IN MEXICO THAT SHE HAS BECOME ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN AND MOST LOVED ARTISTS OF THE DECADE.

 

 

 

HER PAINTINGS ARE EVERYWHERE FROM PRIVATE HOMES AND OFFICES TO CLUBS AND RESTAURANTS AND ALWAYS CAUSE A SENSATION BECAUSE OF THEIR REALISTIC EXPRESION AND HUMOR AND SENSUAL SEXY UNTERTONES AND SPOTLESS PERFECTION....

 

 

 

FEW POP PAINTERS HAVE ACTUALLY ACHIEVED THIS LEVEL OF PAINTING PERFECTION AND CLASS….. AS IT IS A VERY DIFFICULT AND TIME CONSUMING ART FORM.  AND ALTHOUGH IT LOOKS EASY TO PAINT....IT IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT FORMS OF PAINTING. 

 

 

 

BUT BURTON MAKES IT LOOK EASY AND SHE IS CURRENTLY  ON HER WAY TO BECOMING ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN AND MOST POPULAR POP PAINTERS OF THIS CENTURY.
