Artist Insight: Shawn Barber

Shawn Barber is a Painter who primarily used oils. The work he likes to do is Portraiture but specifically chronicles Tattoos. As he has stated his work entails document contemporary tattoo culture. His work has bold dynamic colors with intricate lifelike details. Barber paints on large canvases that he stretches himself. I learned a lot from purchasing his oil painting demo from Massive Black. Which there I learned of Recycling Solvents.  Currently he runs a tattoo parlor with his girlfriend. His studio is at Tattoo Memoir. He gains inspiration painting and seeing people get tattoos all day.
