              About The Artwork:

       Barry's style is a modern abstract technique involving the use of thin layers to  create a deep textured surface with vibrant colors.

      Barry primarily uses hardboard and panelboard as his canvas due to the intense amount of pressure required to create the textured feel of the work.

Barry uses many types of acrylic based paints and assorted gessos to build textures and create unique blends of colors.

Welcome to the online gallery  for artist Barry Knauff.  Barry is an Ohio native who  enjoys the Salt life of the Crystal Coast .  Barry spends a majority of his free time surfing and fishing along the North Carolina coast. Barry's fascination with creating art has been with him since his early childhood. Barry began with drawings and sketches, and today is creating original and unique paintings that are vibrant with intense colors and textures.  Barry began painting in his free time in college and continued after his military tour.  Barry's abstract paintings are inspired by the unique organic textures often found in naturally weathered objects . Barry currently has a series dedicated to nautical designs and décor, vibrant cityscapes, and textured abstracts. Barry strives to produce artwork that is not only nice to view, but instills a sense of relaxation and calm. Through the use of intense textures and a vibrant color pallet, Barry is able to create works that are truly unique and one of a kind.
