Award-winning equestrian artist Booth Malone left a corporate job at Coca-Cola to pursue fine art. A self-taught painter, he studied the work and techniques of portraitist John Singer Sargent and equestrian artist Sir Alfred Munnings, as well as N.C. Wyeth, Rockwell, Remington, Russell, and Leyendecker.
In 1994 he first exhibited in Saratoga and the following year was invited to membership in The American Academy of Equine Art (A.A.E.A.), where he has subsequently served as a painting workshop instructor. He has served as the Academy’s Director of Painting since 2014. He has been the official artist for numerous steeplechase meets, as well as The Virginia Gold Cup and the 2006 Breeder’s Cup. His artwork is regularly featured in The Chronicle of The Horse and other equestrian magazines and catalogs.
Malone enjoys a close association with The United States Pony Clubs (USPC), and is a member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and the Portrait Society of Atlanta (Member of Merit). In 2012 Green Island Country Club chose him to portray 1987 Master’s Champion Larry Mize. His most recent exhibition was held jointly with sculptor Kathleen Friedenberg at the Aiken (SC) Art Center.
