Barry Finan

Framed Postcard; YESS LAD YOU CAN


Barry Finan is an artist born in Manchester. Defining himself as a writer, actor and artist, he produces bold, text based visual art he calls "WRRIGHHTINGSERRSS". He uses repetitive letters to elongate his words, which can become scripts, personal messages and hopes for the future.

This piece was done in collaboration with The Whitworth Gallery.
