Bart Forbes' unique approach to painting is a result of many years spent both as a fine artist and illustrator. His interest in sports has led to a wide variety of major commissions.

Forbes has done theme paintings for a variety of PGA and Seniors' tournaments, and is known for his many posters and prints. He has also designed over 20 commemorative postage stamps for the U.S. Postal Service, including the 1988 Olympic Stamps, Lou Gehrig and Jesse Owens stamps and the "America the Beautiful" series. His work has appeared in countless magazines, including Sports Illustrated and TIME. Corporate clients include Exxon, Pepsi-Cola, ABC-TV, Eastman Kodak, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, American Airlines and the NFL.

In 1988, Forbes was selected by the Korean Olympic Committee to be the Official Artist for the Seoul Olympics. His paintings of the events are housed in the Olympic Museum in Seoul. In addition, he has painted official posters for the Boston Marathon, The Americas Cup, Indianapolis 500 as well as the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games.
