Amazed to discover a whole new world, the Barnabes have no intention of returning to the workshop, no way are they getting back in those boxes!
Despite the artist’s best efforts, he hasn’t been able to catch them all. The Barnabes are free and they’re determined to stay that way! Unstoppable, they’re spreading across the earth, colonizing hills, mountains and deserts, and they’re breeding like rabbits. Now, they want even more, as they set their sights on a universe much, much larger than our own: the Metaverse.
Barnabe has been honing his craft since childhood. Early in his career, he developed a distinctive graphic process using three parallel lines and launched a movement based around infection and proliferation.
Barnabe entered the scene through the world of illicit street art, infiltrating the urban environment with his signature ghost.
Throughout his career, Barnabe has deconstructed his iconic characters and images in the pop art tradition, merging art history with popular culture.
Over the years, Barnabe has exhibited his art all over the world, in Europe, Africa, America and Asia. Having developed a unique style that reflects his experiences via a wide range of influences, his art has succeeded in influencing our society.
