Mike Barr is a talented painter based in South Australia, who creates evocative rainy-day cityscapes. Even though rain in the city may be seem negative on paper, yet it is a real-life drama that evokes both excitement and comfort when seen in a painting. Focused more on an overall impression they would make on the viewer, rather than intricate details, Barr’s paintings don’t tell the whole story. “When the feeling are shared, my mission is accomplished,” he says.
There is more than enough to see in a photograph, but in my paintings, I want the viewer to find the deep feelings.
