Joseph Barbara

"Art is my life"

View Art Collection

Artist Profile:

Throughout most of his life, inspirations to create a piece of work have never lacked. If he had to summarize what truly inspired him, most definitely they would be his personal dreams, which come to his very vividly and the subjects are of a very interesting and unusual nature. This might be the result of reading historical, mythical, occult and science-fiction books. Once the painting has been formed and set up in his mind, Joseph uses his knowledge from reading and his imagination to further enhance laying out his dreams on canvas.
