‘La Paz’, opening at the StolenSpace Gallery on the 3rd April will showcase new works by Will Barras. The show will feature paintings on canvas, linen and fabric in acrylic alongside the release of 2 new screen prints hand pulled by the artist.
“Will Barras’ composition and fluid lines provide poignant detail in liquid abstraction. The subject matter is readily familiar, but captured in a manner that seems to jar time and space with psychedelic abstraction. It is his way of expressing the emotional movements of this labour. It is therapy and pleasure and necessity. Though Will is more passionate about Cricket, and even the art of the poached egg than he is of Skate or Snowboarding, he is hailed as one of the visual artists who best represents these influential creative movements. This is not only an indicator of his prolific work rate and good nature, his artwork featuring on all types of boards, clothes and mural campaigns, but more so of his unique voice, technical competency and sense of exploration.”

Will is in high demand both commercially and artistically. He directs for the animation production Company Bermuda Shorts and designs for other commercial projects that excite him.
Alongside his commercial work Will rarely takes a rest from painting and exhibiting. Last year he participated in the acclaimed Wooster on Spring exhibition in New York which saw people queuing for over five hours to get in.
He has also exhibited as far and wide as Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Brussels, Edinburgh, Mayrhofen, Oslo, Copenhagen, Bratislava, Cologne, Budapest, Warsaw and London.
StolenSpace are extremely excited to present Will Barras’ latest solo exhibition, and from the glimpses we have seen so far, it is without doubt his strongest collection of work to date.
