Drawings by Barry Falls
Bangor Carnegie Library
Free during library opening hours

Barry is an award-winning illustrator and artist from County Tyrone. He provides illustration for editorial, design, advertising and publishing.

Barry works with a variety of pen, pencil, paint and found materials. Sections of a drawing are created individually and then assembled on the computer in a digital collage. Texture and vibrant, saturated colours are a hallmark of his work.

Facial expression and nuances of gesture or posture allow for the creation of a complex personality within the context of a ‘simple’ drawing. Barry’s love of drawing fauna and flora is apparent in much of his work. His aptitude at finding a compelling visual to accompany an abstruse subject, has led to repeated work for The Lancet medical journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, The New York Times and The Financial Times. As well as editorial, corporate and advertising work, Barry has also produced book covers for Faber & Faber, Random House and Macmillan and illustrated short stories in The New Yorker. His first picture book for young children, It’s Your World Now! was published in 2019.
