Resident Artist – Barry Eigen

2a4b37545b5319d98ad8a1d5115345cfFor more than a decade on behalf of a Dallas-based investment banking firm, I traveled weekly to cities from coast to coast, both in the United States and Canada, presenting full-day seminars for business owners on Mergers and Acquisitions. Between trips, I painted.

Finding the weekly travel schedule grueling, and with the gentle encouragement of my wife, I retired to do full time what I loved most—I now paint full time.  So these days, in a remarkable turn of events, I fly anywhere my imagination takes me and I never have to board a plane.
I paint primarily in Acrylics on canvas and have experimented with varied styles and subject matter. Landscapes, portraits and still lifes all interest me. My greatest joy is developing nuances in color, tone and texture. Austin, Texas is my home and while most of my landscapeigan_2es celebrate the Southwest, having spent the majority of my life in Wisconsin some of my work continues to reflect the Midwest.

I’ve been accepted by jury into the Milwaukee League of Artists and am currently a member of the Austin Artists’ Network, Lakeway Painters and am a resident artist at the Austin Art Space Gallery & Studios—a division of The 53c6d6c957348698dd86c502b2e85cc0Austin Visual Arts Association.
