Louise Ebarb - A Painter Grows in Brooklyn

Amidst the concrete and blaring car horns of Brooklyn, New York, raw artistic talent brims. Louis Ebarb is a prime example of this phenomenon. As a long time resident of Brooklyn and a member of the Choctaw-Apache Tribe of Ebarb, Louisiana, Mr. Louis Ebarb is adept at finding the beauty that lies within and displaying it like only he can in his magnificent paintings. For our viewing pleasure, he mixes his rich, colorful heritage with the complexities of Urbana. A student of painting at Pratt Institute in the 1970s, Ebarb's style reflects the emerging Minimalist Movement. In 1988, he incorporated his training in abstract art with the concepts of the American Realists of the early twentieth century and began to document his experiences and time through his unique version of Urban Realism.

Louise Ebarb’s works have been presented in various galleries throughout the United States. His collections can be found at the State University of New York-Downstate Medical Center, Columbia Univeristy, New York State Museum in Albany, the United Nations and more. Mr. Ebarb has also been the recipient of numerous awards. Check out his works of art at his website below.

Mr Ebarb's talent lies in that his raw vision still leaves you wondering what else might be happening. Quietly making an enormous statement.
