They say you can't go home again. Barry Brown knows otherwise. For the past 35 years, Barry has made his living. But all along, he was still the artist who first majored in commercial art in college before opting for another path. While Barry continued to keep a hand in the art world, making posters for his workplaces and church, that creative spark smoldered. He discovered paper mosaics which led to stained glass mosaics. Originally inspired by much of the pop art of the 60s and 70s, including album art , posters and comic books. Favorites and influences include artists such as Peter Max, Roger Dean and the Dutch graphic artist M.C.Escher. Barry continues to find inspiration in nature, science and Christianity. DNA and water are often seen in his works. While he continues to work, his heart is at home as an artist.
