Description

The largest collection of the popular artist’s drawings ever assembled. With over 200 sketches in his “old school,” pencil-to-paper fluid style. Glenn Barr’s energetic loose line dances on the page. His pencil strokes evoke a playfulness and ease, yet reveal a honed mastery of storytelling. Juxtapoz says his work “exude[s] the sensuality and tension found in pulp art or film noir,” and HiFructose says it demonstrates a “unique style that combines cheesy glamour with scenes based in modern reality.”

“I love drawing and capturing that initial spark. That first crude concept of formulating an idea and having your hand deliver it to paper. Out of this ‘stream of consciousness’ of flowing ideas I find it usually leads to bigger themes and concepts for paintings, which most of the drawings in this book became.” -Glenn Barr

Glenn Barr was raised in a Midwest working-class environment that ingrained in him a strong work ethic and an affection for B movies, local music, and trash culture. He graduated from Detroit’s College for Creative Studies and went on to establish himself in the art world, exhibiting in Los Angeles, New York, Rome, London, and Australia. Barr’s work is embraced worldwide. He’s one of the school of “urban alternative and underground contemporary art,” that is celebrated in Juxtapoz magazine. A polished painter in the same class, and capturing similar popular culture motifs, as fellow practitioners Robert Williams, Mark Ryden and Todd Schorr.
