Barb Sherin is a contemporary American painter whose paintings have been featured in solo exhibitions nationally and in Singapore.
Sherin who got her start in the early 90's in NYC... says "I was just a kid, but it was pure energy. I totally felt surrounded by creativity...use to enjoy roaming
the city in search of street art and it all fascinated me... they were all amazing
artists. The feeling was free and it told a story...they were the voices of people
that were underrepresented.
Barb Sherin's unrelenting interest in designing had her juggling both senior year
in High School and training at The French Fashion Academy in NYC. She then attended Parsons School of Design and was shortly introduced to the music
industry. There, she met Pioneer Hip Hop Photographer, Al Pereira. He suggested her artwork as backdrops for his photo shoots. Soon after, her
paintings landed in magazines with recording artists, Schoolly D, MC Ren,
YoYo, Tevin Campbell, Wu Tang Clan and more.
Barb is a native New Yorker. However, she is currently based in Barcelona.
Through the years, living abroad and experiencing different cultural environments are major influences. "Painting is my life. It lets me express my everyday...whether inspired by someone...something...somewhere...a moment."
Her Art is part of private collections in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles,
Miami and Spain.
