Barrett De Busk
Barrett DeBusk has been creating and showing art since his college days at North Texas State University, where he earned both his BFA and MFA degrees. DeBusk’s saterical look at life combined with his natural ability to create has given form to this incredible collection of sculptures that began in the early 90s when he began creating contemporary wall sculptures and furniture. DeBusk’s uncomplicated illustration of subjects emphasize his innovative use of materials and a remarkable ability to capture a mood with simple lines. “It’s my way of drawing. I use torch and steel instead of pencil and paper.”
Each piece is created from cold rolled, hand bent steel rod that is welded together and put on “legs” that display it off the wall for a shadow effect. Each piece is powder coated, making them extremely easy to care for and enjoy. Every piece is individually stamped and numbered as part of a small edition, complete with a certificate of authenticity.
Affiriming Barrett’s talent is a growing list of colletors that include Michael Jordan, Tara Lapinsky, Jerry Seinfeld and norman Lear. DeBusk works are part of many collections throughout the world including the Reflex Museum in Amsterdam, the American Embassy in Africa and collections in England, New Zealand, Australia, France, Germany, Japan and in the permanent White House collection.
