Louis Ebarb - Manager, Video Production & Video Conferencing Services
A resident of Brooklyn, New York, and a member of the Choctaw-Apache Tribe of Ebarb, Louisiana, the painter Louis Ebarb draws on his complex mix of cultures to create his images.
Working as an Abstract Expressionist in the 1960s, he studied painting at Pratt Institute where his style reflected the emerging Minimalist Movement. In 1988, Mr. Ebarb 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 rendition of Urban Realism. While the earlier American realists encountered their images as newspaper artists, Mr. Ebarb established his style through the lens of his still and video cameras.
Beyond painting, Mr. Ebarb has worked in many creative endeavors: Theater Craftsman; Animator; Illustrator; Graphic designer; Production Designer; Art Instructor; Video Producer; Video Director.
His paintings have been shown at the Fraga Gallery, New Orleans, La., the Belanthi Gallery, Brooklyn N.Y., the Temple Gallery, Vails Gate, N.Y.; the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition's Pier Shows I, II and III and the State University of New York's Victory Arts Gallery.
In 2007 he received two Telly awards for the video. Music Between the Notes: Reflections on the Art of Roamre Bearden.
He continues to chronicle his time and the people who define it.
