Barnaby Furnas is a painter known for using watercolor and urethane on monumental canvases. He was born in Philadelphia, where his experience as a graffiti artist influenced his painting style. His works are often violent, depicting scenes from history, the Bible, and literature. Furnas received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts and MFA from Columbia University in 2000. He lives and works in New York and has shown internationally, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial and a major survey at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in 2012. He is represented by Marianne Boesky Gallery (NY), Stuart Shave/Modern Art (London), and Anthony Meier (San Francisco).
