Here is an interview with Will Barras that took place in 2009:

Barras’ style is sometimes called fluid abstraction. I enjoy his art for its mix of realism and abstraction.

The artist works in many mediums and seems to favor acrylics and India ink.

The movement of the figures in Barras’ work reminds me of the American WPA artists such as Thomas Hart Benton.
