His passion for art began to form when he was a young child and his works attracted increasing public attention and recognition beginning in his early years. He had his first professional art exhibition soon after. Barbour is a professional painter and sculptor who blends Old Masters techniques with contemporary narrative. His work courts ambiguity, and symbolism and is inspired by his love for the human figure. He is very dedicated to using the techniques of the Old Masters and concerned with anatomical, and realistic accuracy and a seriousness that requires attention to detail and slow, rich execution.
  3. 3. His images are filled with movement and symbolism. They frequently ask us to reflect upon the eternal or universal aspects of our lives and to redefine truth and perception. Barbour is also a dedicated Professor and lecturer of Human Anatomy, Figurative Art / Portraiture and in Art History at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco and has also previously taught different art courses in New York, New Jersey, and Italy for several years. He also founded The Estudio Barbour Atelier where he privately trains a select number of artists in advanced anatomy and more advanced drawing, painting and sculpture techniques in the classical realist tradition of the Old Masters and will occasionally travel to conduct various art demonstrations and workshops during the year. Barbour received his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and in Anatomy from the New York Academy of Art, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Hartford Art School in Connecticut. He has also studied at the Art Students League of New York, and lived in Italy where he exhibited and trained in fresco/mural, traditional Old Masters techniques, and in art conservation. At The New York Academy of Art he studied under leading artists including such as: Vincent Desiderio, Martha Mayer Erlebacher, Steven Assael, Deane Keller, Wade
