Barry Finan

Framed Postcard

£10.00

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.

In 2018 Barry became the first learning disabled artists to have a piece acquired by The Whitworth for their main fine art collection. The original piece has been displayed at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporory Arts, Manchester Contempory Art Fair and The Lowry.
