Glenn Barry

Glenn Barry has a passion for communication, using the vehicle of art as a catalyst towards bridging differences through connections. Working in a range of media including painting and technologically produced imagery, he uses multi-modal approaches to open up concepts about identity. As an urban man who identifies with his heritage of First Nation Australian and Irish, Barry is interested in exploring and honouring ways in which art can express traditional values with contemporary lived experiences.

He has taught and shared his ideas across Australia, South Pacific, USA and Japan. He has completed multiple mural projects across SE Qld environments,  Education Qld schools, including Catholic Education's Pray 2010. He has been a recipient of many scholarships including Kooemba Djarra and the Gold Coast City Council.
