Education and Inspiration
Barry originally wanted to be an Architect but ended up studying Graphic Design instead. Following this, he worked as a Creative Director at various advertising agencies before leaving to pursue printmaking at the London College of Printing at UAL. Barry takes inspiration from popular 20th-Century American artists, particularly Abstract Expressionist Richard Diebenkorn, New Realist painter Wayne Thiebaud and The Father of Pop-Art Andy Warhol.
Barry Goodman’s Style and Process
Interestingly, his love of architecture and locomotion is reflected in his prints which he organises into three respective categories: Architecture, Stuff and Automotive. One of Barry’s favoured printmaking techniques is collagraphy, the process of collaging different textures together or applying various materials to a rigid substrate. The artist now lives and works in London, continuing to produce colourful and uplifting prints such as A to Z.
