An incredibly talented guy, Barnes sold his first piece at only 14 years old and has been painting and exhibiting since 16. He was the first recipient of the New Zealand Affordable Art Trust Artist Grant providing him a $15,000 salary over 6 months and his own Lyall Bay studio for that time. The grant also provided his gallery at the NZ Art Show, given his success at the show I hope he will be back next year too. He is also a music artist, releasing his debut music video onto NZ stations last year.
