BarryBoem is het pseudoniem van een Alkmaarse Kunstenaar. In andere landen is hij ook bekend onder de naam BarryBoom.
In de jaren '90 begon Barry met het maken van kunst, ook op Straat (StreetArt.)

Sinds 2008 werd zijn werk ook geëxposeerd. BarryBoem is tegenwoordig o.a. toegevoegd aan The Funky Art Gallery in Oxford,,, accessart e.d.. In 2014 was er een solo-expositie van BarryBoom's werk in New York. en in 2015/2016 was zijn werk te zien en te koop in 'de Blok' en "Koel310' te Alkmaar. Daarna heeft z'n werk een vlucht genomen en gaan de bestellingen veelal online, ongeveer 1 a 2 keren per jaar zijn er exposities te bezoeken.
Barry comes from a creative Dutch family, his father can make anything with his hands and his mother has a very artistic skillset. This stimulated Barry to develop himself, investigating new creative opportunities.

As a child he went to art club every Friday where he could try out all kinds of creative techniques, nowadays Barry volunteers there to teach the next generation various skills and pass on his experience.

He was out of the house at a young age sporting a fear of nuclear bombs and influences in science fiction, he lives his life as if there was no tomorrow. In his adolescence he connected with friends who are well known in the graffiti world, he has learned and experienced many things on the street, enjoying the freedom of discovering the hip hop culture and the house music scene, as well as many different forms of Street Art.

Eventually he found his calling and started working with difficult children/young people who came from challenging backgrounds. Barry works as a creative therapist, and in his spare time makes works of art. Barry Boem is primarily a mixed media and stencil artist who experiments with lots of other varied techniques and principles. Through his work he attempts to examine the human phenomenon, how we understand ourselves and others, how we communicate, learn, feel, discover and invent.

His mixed media technique tries to embody an idiosyncratic view of human nature, the familiar imagery allows a connection between fantasy and how the world is actually presented to us. Barrys work uses influences from artistic styles such as Hugo Kaagman, Banksy and Logan Hicks. Barry Boem has participated in several exhibitions, mostly in the Netherlands. Thanks to his connections he involves himself with works of art exchanges with other artists and guerrilla art campaigns. Barry’s work can now be found all over the world.

Het werk van BarryBoem is divers, zie internet voor verschillende voorbeelden.

"Everybody needs a Boom! sometimes to… make people think: Art!"

When I work with spray cans, paper and images I am reminded how everybody is an artist. My desire is to discover how my work stimulates people to get in contact with their minds and appreciate life, how we know it.
I begin a piece after a night filled with new experiences, images and energy. I know a piece is done when I want to sleep. When my work is progressing well, I am filled with a sense of calmness.
When people see my work, I'd like to see them smile or nod, then walk away talking or thinking about associations provoked by my art.
To Boom or not to Boom!

You can send me mail.
