Barbara Mann graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan in 1973. She was an original member of a group of new artists, the Tribes of Cass Corridor who changed the face of Detroit’s artscape. She continues to fight through her art for basic freedom for all.
The first fifteen years built up my pictorial vocabulary as I looked and studied composition, perspective, color theory, the creators of shapes and forms. Building blocks of the objects in my paintings.
- I began a new style of painting around 2000 and saved myself from such difficult times I never thought could be, First I healed myself by rewriting my life by painting new endings to bad scenario’s.
ANext I created avatars to save our communities and homelands. I moved on to conquer Tyrants and Terrorists, and now I want to export Peace, beginning with creations on paper, providing new life scapes.
I want to speak with the world, even influence and help others through my work. So here is my art and the things I enjoy and feel are important. As always I paint with love, humor and satirical wit.
