Sal Rodriguez recently visited Glenn Barr’s studio and came away with these amazing photos that paint a truly unique portrait of one of my favorite artists. Glenn is currently preparing for his next solo show at the new Inner State Gallery in Detroit.

After Life, an absolutely gorgeous new painting from Glenn Barr for the upcoming group show Kingdom Animalia.
Glenn Barr is rounding up some of your favorite illustrators, lowbrow, pop surrealism & graffiti artists for Lyric 2012, opening this Saturday at 323 East in Royal Oak!
From 323 East:
On the heels of the last March’s inaugural Lyric exhibition at 323East Gallery, Glenn Barr is back to curate the second incarnation of his pervasive musically themed group exhibition Lyric 2012. With an expanded roster of local and international artists ranging from lowbrow, pop surrealism, graffiti and illustration, this show is set to be the largest group exhibition to date at the Metro Detroit gallery named Best of Place to Buy Art (for the 3rd Year in A Row!) by Real Detroit Weekly. For this exhibition Glenn had one simple request for each artist: Each piece of art must be 12 x 12 inches, paying homage to the timeless beauty that can fit on the cover of a vinyl record. Each artist has been given free reign to draw inspiration from their favorite artist, album, song or lyric and put their personal interpretation to canvas.
“Music and its lyrics can always stimulate our emotions as well as leave us contemplating a visual narrative. Artists have always been known to use lyrics as inspiration and with this have created some of the greatest works in the world. This exhibition will illuminate the artist’s personal transcription from a song lyric to canvas.” - Glenn Barr
