Barka, the Glass Artist (Project II: Manifesto)

20 Jan

During the holloween period, a artist in Peckham by the name of Barka was interviewed on ITV news. Never heard of him till recently. He’s an artist that (in the words of an reporter)” has committed to capturing the strength and colour of black Britan”.FB_IMG_1453313160406

Not much colour in black though if you know what I mean 🙂 (I’m black myself so I can get away with that).

I wasn’t really interested in his visual messages surprisingly enough. What got me hooked was the concept of painting on a glass window, which he does very organically.

Barka had an exhibition on for a short time (16-18 of October 2015) in Peckham so I decided to see these “glass paintings” up-close.

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something pretty cool about painting on window glass. So hopefully,  if I get a good frame myself, I might give glass painting a try. See how far it goes.
