Clinton T. Hobart is the only Still-Life painter to become a Licensed Disney Fine Artist. His paintings are technically still-lifes, because he works from real objects in front of him often building elaborate sets which can take as long as the painting itself. For the Tangled painting he constructed a four foot tall replica of the tower made out of stone, mortar, cardboard, plaster and wood.

Clinton has always been a fan of the movies and acting and often imagines that the objects in his still-lifes are actors on a stage.
He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts in NY. He also spent five summers as assistant to Portrait Artist Daniel Greene.

Clinton also paints portraits, figurative, and ocean wave paintings. He was featured in the February 2009 issue of American Artist magazine. In 2013 he appeared on CBS News with Scott Pelle after a Chinese company sold forged copies of his paintings online. Afterward, the Huffington Post mentioned the story in an article stating that Clinton was part of a “sting operation.” Most recently he was featured in a live segment on Fox News.
