Barry Patterson

Vibrant digital illustrator. UK

Barry Patterson
Now based in Hertfordshire, Barry Patterson grew up in Cheshire in a family full of Liverpool supporters. It wasn’t until he was in his 40s that he was told he was also related to a former Everton captain. When he’s not creating artworks, he loves watching good films in beautiful cinemas, and can’t stand multiplexes. He also enjoys modern architecture, and the energy of live music festivals.

Training

Barry went to Chester College for his foundation course, and then to De Montfort University where he did a BA in Illustration.

Approach

Richness and vibrancy is what Barry sets out to achieve in his work. There is always a degree of realism there for the viewer to relate to, but his main interest is in generating a sense of mood and atmosphere.

Styles

Barry’s artwork is normally colourful, and often has a dreamlike, impressionist quality to it. He uses a blurring effect not just to create a sense of movement, but juxtaposed with areas of great detail and focus it leads your eye to the important areas of each composition. His styles are diverse, from photorealistic work to looser, more expressive pastel illustrations – even though the latter are generated on a Mac using Painter. When creating fine art, he paints in oils using cloths, sponges and palette knives more than brushes.
