Richard Gene Barbera

 

Richard Gene Barbera is visual artist strongly influenced by coastal life, especially scenes from his upbringing in Portland, Maine, and from time spent in other international seaboard landscapes. His compositions are exquisitely composed to capture the scene with dynamism and affection whether it be fishermen working on their nets, cottages perched above pebbly shores or viewpoints down toward expansive beaches.

 

Currently living in Connecticut, as a youth Barbera studied under visiting artists at the Portland School of Art, ME. He graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from Hartford College, CT, during which time he also attended University of Southern Maine to focus on drawing and painting. Alongside his painting practice, for many years, Barbera worked as a Creative Designer making branding identities for large international companies.

 

His work now is motivated by the preservation of coastal environments and through his painting and printmaking he seeks to advocate for the counteraction of careless approaches and to draw attention to the negative impacts of pollution.
