Hinton was a well known artist in Houston during the 70s and 80s. He left much of his work to my stepfather and we are getting some out of boxes and hopefully onto someone’s wall.
Fred starred in Houston’s first production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He passed away from HIV in the 80s, after the closing night of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and performing in it.
Most of his work consists of ink of paper and he often did promotional work for venues, concerts, and nightclubs around Houston, as well as having his own gallery show. He was very active in Houston’s gay community and was a huge activist for gay rights. His art covers a range of subjects and a lot of what we have is drafts he did before the art became an actual advertisement.
