DOM BARRA, neapolitan artist, approched and started his practice in the field of visual art during his 7 years of life in England, Great Britain, studying at the Leeds College of Art and Design. His creative production interests a wide use of techniques such as installation, digital art, mixed medias paintings with a choice of subjects spreading from works with sociopolitical concerns to works with a more introspective approch.
The works of D. Barra are characterized by an eccentric use of colours. The artist lights up his creative flair with any tools or objects on his hand, works of a very strong visual impact and out of the boundries of "style" of mass consumption art.
D. Barra has exhibited either in Italy or abroad his native country with a preference towards unusual spaces outside the common and enlightened "temples" consecrated to the worship of art excellences.
The perpetuating creative dialectic of D. Barra results in a constant research for innovative artistic results in matters of subjects and the ways they can be depicted.
He collaborates with the Italian Music Label "Subcava Sonora". He is the graphic designer for the advertisement campaigns for the NGO "Sensacional". D. Barra also is the co-founder of the fashion accessories firm "RAZE Excessories" and he is member of the Neapolitan Artist Collective "URTO!"
"My art is instinctive, a visual projection of personal perceptions of facts concerning oneself or a plurality experience on a human level or on a parallel consecutive reality. An offshore vision of lived life on my skin and not. An obscure or bright research for bodies and storylines created with great modesty to leave a sign in your eyes, to either hurt or pleasure your look as far as I achieve to intereact with your mind for more than a minute." D. Barra
