Biography of Barrington R. DeMers
Barrington R. DeMers has been living and working in Bradenton Florida since 1983. Miro, Salvador Dali and Vincent Van Gogh are some of the artists that have inspired his contemporary style in his artwork. He is especially interested in the interaction of the color and form in his abstract expressionist style. He is known by his friends as the “the pixel pusher” because he paints digitally by moving pixels of color on the computer screen with his digital paint brushes. Bary’s Giclée prints on canvas and paper are created and printed using state of the art digital technology. Bary has done many exhibitions in the South West Florida area and has won numerous awards and honors including Honoble Mention in the 2D 3D exhibition 2003 at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, the Digital Age Art Exhibition 2000 at Venice Art Center and best of show for Digital Fine Artists Association 2000 show at Selby Gallery, Ringling School of Art and Design.
