 BIOGRAPHY

Barry is a second generation South African, born of Scottish and Afrikaner descent.  Born in South Africa in 1949 and raised and educated in Zambia in Central Africa.  Barry now lives in Cape Town, near to the slopes of Table Mountain.

He spent two years at the East London School of Art followed by a further year at the Johannesburg School of Art. His medium is bronze sculpture... His style is best described as representational.


He has the professional support of some of the best art foundries in South Africa all situated in Cape Town and they provide the highest quality and most skilled work to be found anywhere.

He began his career in advertising as an art director but soon went freelance as an advertising illustrator. During this period he also did work for the philatelic services department of the GPO and designed and illustrated many sets of stamps and first-day covers including some award-winning sets for South Africa, Namibia and surrounding countries.

His fine art career was developing simultaneously and soon the high demand for his sculptures required him to concentrate almost exclusively in that field.  His works, of limited editions, are sought by collectors and art lovers globally who identify with conservation, wildlife, African ethnic themes and the vanishing cultures of Southern Africa.

He also enjoys portraiture and was commissioned to do the bust of Nelson Mandela which stands in front of the South African Parliament Building.

He is regularly commissioned by the National Heritage Project to do life-size full figure portrait statues of historical figures. Among these are   Mahatma Gandhi, Louis Van Mauritius, Johannes Van der Kemp.

He was commissioned to do the life-size figure of  Nelson Mandela which will be the lead figure in the Long Walk to Freedom at Heritage Park. This will be a procession of 400 t0 500 bronze heritage figures commissioned to artists from all over South Africa.Barry's work is renowned internationally and can be seen in boardrooms and reception areas of companies, private collections and game lodges throughout the world.
