Harry Barden is a colourful and vibrant Australian Artist. Harry is full of humor with his Harrythong Series, music with his Harry Jazz Series and nostalgia with his Harry Outback Series.
My life began in Plymouth, Devonshire in 1931, where I trained at the West of England College of Art, Bristol and subsequently worked for several years for an American animation company as a painter and tracer. Later I served for a time as a technical illustrator for Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft; after which I went to sea, to see the world while working on luxury liners in the hospitality industry. On several occasions my skills were engaged to paint murals on mirrors for festive events. My artistic range includes pastels, watercolour, oils, acrylics, pen and ink work. My current passion is Australiana and outback humour, I am a colourful and vibrant Australian Artist. My work is full of humor with the Harrythong Series, Harry Jazz Series and my nostalgic Harry Outback Series.
