DOM BARRA approached and started his practice in the field of visual art during his 7 years of life in England, Great Britain, also studying at the Leeds College of Art and Design. His creative production interests a wide use of techniques such as installation, digitally manipulated pictures, mixed media paintings with a choice of subjects spreading from works with socio-political concerns to works with a more introspective theme.

The perpetuating creative dialectic of D. Barra results in a constant research for innovative artistic results in matters of subjects and the ways that they can be depicted. Lately his main focus is glitch art and a strong dedication in studying/researching/experimenting with all sorts of pleasing/disturbing noises.

His worsks are featured on various magazines, website and blogs such as Revolutionart Magazine, Players, The Villager Newspaper, Time Out New York, Interartive, Thvndermag, gl1tchf4c3, YouBizarre, 15Folds, I am curating, M0N3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US, Electric Objects, The Multiple Exposure Project, Animal New York, Nerve, Darlin, MashKulture, DailyBest, Detailverliebt, IndieNudes, Daddy Issues and d1Ɍ+y̶ ̶N̶3WWW_M3DI∆ which he also co-curate with Jon Cates + Shawné Michaelain Holloway. Barra has collaborated with New Hive for the project “Major Tendons” curated by Molly Soda. For this project the artist created a powerful gifwall installation as the visual art to match the music track “Remembrance” by american producer Suicideyear.

D. Barra has exhibited in Italy and abroad his native country. Among the shows we can recall the RE/Mixed Media Festival 2012 and 2014 in New York curated by Tom Tenney and the Cloud Makers and Open Tech: An Open Exhibition in Vancouver (Canada) curated by Erik H Zepka and also “The Wrong”, the first Net and Digital Art Biennale.

Barra has worked on few exhibitions such as “The Decelerator” curated by Leo Kuelbs and “Tactical Glitches” curated by Rosa Menkman and Nick Briz, the first group exhibition about glitch art in Italy. The artist has also collaborated to “The Wrong” – New Digital Art Biennale”. Barra is the curator and creator of the street art project “Wonderwall”. He curates few Tumblr blogs which are “v1r0l0gy”, “R!TR4TT!_C0RR0TT!”, “error404logonotfound”, “Biutifool Beastard_Habemus Remix”, “T|-|3_G!FDR0/\/\3”, “Dirty Screen”, “Red Link District”, “Pirate Porno Material 1 && 2”, “Wrecked”, “Toilet Wank”, “Head(her)less”, “A picture is never private”. Together with k4ust S0da (Luigi Console) is the creator/curator/artist of the project “Mighty Kongbot”. He was the curator and promoter, together with the staff of the record label “Subcava Sonora”, of the first copyleft festival of the city of Napoli, Italy.
