Paul Barrera

Paul is an artist, a musician and painter. Born in Bogota, Colombia he and his siblings moved to the US at the age of 4 when his mother remarried. Growing up in Louisiana Paul began sketching and drawing at a very early age. He began painting when he discovered acrylics in middle school and chose that as his favorite medium. Inspiration was drawn from the spirit of the 60’s, the avant garde music from the Beatles, etc., and painters Joan Miro and Peter Max’s colorful and joyful expressions. Paul loves to experiment with different styles, black and white, portraits and colorful abstracts to intrigue and engage the viewer. Paul is a dedicated lifelong student of the arts and the world that he is influenced by, and is always open to new techniques and ideas.
