​After having spent a large part of his life travelling the world, Chris Barley, a French artist concentrating on contemporary abstract painting, is now based in Dubai since 2001.

Due to his nomadic past, he takes pleasure in evoking  distant places, atmospheres and memories with his painting. 

He is dedicated to the expression of emotions and energies through colors, textures and movement. 

With a background of psychologist and the practice of martial arts, Chris explores the possibilities of painting as expression of the body and the mind; he uses abstraction as a way of communicating physically and emotionally, in an attempt to start resonating with people's unconscious.
