Lyndon Barrois Jr.
Lyndon Barrois Jr. (b. 1983, New Orleans) is an artist and educator based in Pittsburgh. He uses magazines, advertising, cinema, and vernacular imagery as primary subjects of inquiry, translating the language of printing and design layout in order to investigate underlying ideology, ethics, and conceptions of identity. In various ways, Barrois navigates questions around colour, control, taste, waste, and the layering of information. Barrois received his MFA from Washington University in St. Louis (2013), and his BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore (2006). He has recently completed residencies at the Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, the Irish Museum of Modern Art. He is half of LAB:D, with artist Addoley Dzegede, and he is a new Assistant Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
