Stink House badgeGrowing with the compartmentalising of scattered disciplines that the current art world has to offer these days Barrett Dvorsky has fingers in all of them from traditional mediums to electronic ones.

His artistic curiosity started from a very early age and has only intensified with the years. Having a background in drawing and oil painting it lead him after high school to attend the Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg where he graduated with a B.F.A. in Visual Communications in 2002.

Once in his career as a designer the need to learn web coding was evident for doing day to day task in his job. Taking a year and a half off from any major art besides a couple drawings he dove into books and learning to understand and write HTLM and CSS.

As life shifted gears and confidence grew with web design he was able to make time for new projects which led him to start working in traditional mediums again. Picking up balsawood as a challenging medium he spent two years creating wooden flowers sculptures that hang on the wall. A time consuming and physically demanding on hobby began to put undue wear and tear on his hands so he dove back into drawing and Stink House was born!

Focusing on illustration Barrett started making cartoon based designs around his acronym W.I.F.F.E.R. "Wow I Fucking Farted Extra Rotten!". His new brand idea was a simple house silhouette with a pile of poop cut out from it. Each character defined by a gas mask and haunted by a giant smell symbol. Stink House has become a great pass time in between his day job and freelance gigs.

Barrett started going to the Paper Crown Gallery in the fall of 2011 and began back full circle back into painting. While spending time there he picked up another tool in the form of a spray paint can and now only works in oils on occasion. Meeting a ton of new people and learning from the others around him he venturing of into a bunch of different means of expression with a mix of different mediums.

Now after aligning the two side of his artistic career he has focused his efforts on the community he is part of and growing it bigger. Applying everything he has learned from his schooling, career, and life Barrett and Dennis have started the Black Cloud Collective in order to help bring awareness and market other artists around them and the world.
