He is a professional painter and sculptor who blends Old Masters techniques with contemporary narrative. His work courts ambiguity, and comes from inspiration and love for the human figure.

He is concerned with anatomical, realistic accuracy and a seriousness that requires attention to detail and slow, rich execution. His works represent the figure and facets of life where world reality can appear as a puzzle, or dream reality. His images ask us to redefine what truth really is.

Barbour is an instructor of Anatomy and Art History at the Academy of Art College in SF and taught in New York for several years. He received an MFA in Painting and Anatomy from the New York Academy of Art, and a BFA from the Hartford Art School. He has also studied at the Art Students League of NY and in Italy where he exhibited and trained in fresco and art conservation.

Barbour is represented in galleries throughout New York, and Los Angeles and in private and corporate collections both in the United States and Internationally.
