He studied at the well-known Art Institute of Chicago, and then worked as a graphic designer in New York City. Influenced by his work in advertising, he began painting his detailed images from photographs, before becoming a full-time artist in 1966. Many of his early paintings focused on the lives of city-dwellers, before his attention shifted more exclusively to urban cityscapes and architecture. Before art school, Estes had wanted to study architecture, an interest that clearly asserts itself in his work from the late 1960s onwards, with his focus on the details of not just the nature of the buildings in his paintings, but also the reflective glass and steel structures of the city. His Urban Landscapes series exemplifies his interest in the modern city, and his interest in printmaking. He perfected his labour-intensive screenprinting techniques in 1971, painting his templates in gouache and acrylic before photographing them. The photographic template is then used to create stencils for the screenprinting process, which can be time consuming due to the large number of colours and tones employed by the artist. Over the years he has exhibited extensively around the world, and Estes’ work can be found in the collections of many major museums, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Neue Galerie der Stadt Aachen, Ludwig Collection in Aachen Germany.
