For the past four years, Tony Barber, Australian artist, critic, teacher, and member of the 1960’s rock band Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs, has been working on a new easel design. Encouraged by his fellow artists and students to develop this new easel, Tony Barber has been specifically designing it to eradicate the symptoms artists suffer from long hours of work, such as lower back pain, neck pain, sore arms, aching shoulders or weary legs.
His latest and vastly improved Mark 4 version has just been completed. He named it the ARTristic Easel, and judging by the comments and testimonials coming from both experienced and beginner artists lucky enough to have painted with the easel, it certainly appears to be able to do what its inventor claims it can, and so much more!
Tony Barber is a man of many talents. He considers himself to be proficient as an artist/painter/illustrator, as a sculptor in paper, as a sculptor in fabric, and as a designer/inventor. Tony is well aware that not all artists are receptive to change. But when art teachers, gallery owners, student and professional artists who used his new easel make bold statements such as … “My art abilities instantly took a giant leap forward.” “Since painting with this easel I have won two art awards.” “There is simply no turning back. This easel has changed my life.” “I wanted an easel I could attach drawing boards, wood panels and stretched canvas to. For me this easel ticks every single box.” “The versatility of the easel is truly revolutionary, taking artists into the 21st century with its ingenious but practical design.” ……….they endorse these words spoken recently by an artist of a different kind. “I respect and have learnt from the traditions of the past, but I’m not going to let them stop me exploring future ones.” Mick Jagger. Singer. Rolling Stones Rock n Roll band.
