Will Barnet is an American artist, known for his paintings, watercolors, drawings, and prints, depicting human figures and animals, both in casual scenes of daily life and in transcendent, dreamlike worlds. He was a key figure in New York’s Indian Space Painting movement of abstract and semi-abstract works, based on Native American art. Barnet’s works, while universal, reference his own personal history, complete with images of his family and the New England environment where he grew up.
