Barry Hoyabembe - Large Graffitied Train
My name is Barry Hoyabembe. I am originally from Michigan. I strive to use 100% recycled materials in my works. I am drawn to weathered textures, vintage lettering and signage. I generally find things on the curb, in abandoned spaces, or in dumpsters. I have painted a lot in the past, but recently have moved towards welding, woodworking, and hand binding books. Functionality has become a focus. Bringing joy to people through the things I create, whether its a silly drawing that makes one laugh, or a space that is designed for creative interaction, is satisfying. I find variety important, with living,habits, and creating. They say variety is the spice of life, and i feel that to live through ones creations necessitates that, in order to keep growing.
