About Barry Rabello

 
 
  • Biography
    Having studied fine arts at Senior High in Johannesburg, South Africa. In the early sixties, Barry realised at an early age he wanted to become an artist. 

    Although his career path initially led him to persue another avenue, his love of painting and passion to create his own artworks always brought him back to his desire to follow his artistic yearning. In 2004 Barry went for a course in oil painting for 4 months to get to learn the technique of oil painting and progressed to be self taught further. 

    After perfecting his skills and creating an impressive art portfolio which expresses his versatility as an artist Barry began to focus his attention to working in oils.

    It is this medium in which Barry excels, using similar techniques as used by the 'Old Masters' to create depth and luminosity, dark and lights to his paintings, bringing the subject on canvas to life!

    This talented artist's eye for grace and movement have steered him towards art forms, portraits and in particular his mesmerising depiction of life size NUDES in a way that captures the 'mood' elements of this dual personality Gemini.

    It comes as no surprise to find this artist, who since 2004 has been creating sought after artworks from his own Cape Town studio, busy with another commissioned artwork from both local and overseas art collectors.

    When Barry isn't attentive to his canvas and oils, he enjoys travelling, which he does extensively. He draws great inspiration from his love of galleries and art exhibitions which he enjoys to visit, especially when in Europe.
