Born and raised in New York City, Barry attended the prestigious High School of Music and Art, followed by Pratt Institute where he graduated with a BFA in Graphic Art and Illustration.
As a free-lance illustrator his work initially embraced Sports subjects for Sports Illustrated, Golf Magazine, Outdoor Life and Ski Magazine. It then expanded to include dynamic visual interpretations of technology for Corporate brochures of fortune 500 companies.
Barry loved airplanes and aviation from an early age, and earned his pilot’s license when he was twenty years old. Because of his knowledge of flying and his drawing ability, he received a contract from Flying Magazine for a monthly illustration as their contributing illustrator. For over forty years he has illustrated for Flying Magazine and more recently for Plane and Pilot Magazine.
These experiences served as a springboard for many other sports and aviation related commissions throughout his career, including books, magazine work, corporate and private commissions. He has had a one man shows at several air and space museums, and there is a permanent Gallery of Barry’s Flying illustrations in the Air Venture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
