Hello and welcome to my online gallery.

My Name is Alan Barnes and I am a Melbourne based artist.

I have been an artist for more than 20 years and although not formally trained my artwork has developed and evolved over the years to the point where my work has been recognised both internationally and in Australia. Drawing inspiration from the world, the future and darker parts of society and a need to always create something different my works can be dark and provocative, but recent works have been bright and colourfull.

Over the last twelve years I have had private showings in Melbourne, and have twice represented Australia in the Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art in 2003 and 2007. Most recently I have had artwork displayed at the Colorida Gallery in Lisbon Portugal. My artwork has been published online in the Artoteque Online Biennale and in print in the Florence Biennale Catalogues and the M.O.T. (Masters of Today) Contemporary Masters Book. I have also received invites to participate in the Guangzhou Art Fair and The Chania International Art Festival as well as invites to show in various galleries in New York, Montreal and Melbourne.

I continue to challenge myself and evolve my artwork by using different methods and mediums on different surfaces. This has led to my most recent commissioned works on old vinyl records and furniture pieces.
