Barry Reigate

(British, 1971)

British artist Barry Reigate’s jumbled artworks celebrate great painting and offer a beautifully unique style of composition. Executed over airbrushed and complex canvases, a mass of colour and detail intertwine to create a visual overload for the audience.

“I’m interested in cartoon imagery because I was taught how to draw by my father. When visiting him at Wandsworth Prison, my father would try to entertain me through drawing popular imagery such as King Kong, or Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.”

Reigate’s work has been shown at Tate Britain, Saatchi Gallery, Art Gallery of South Australia as well as many more notable institutes around the world.
