  1. This is amazing work, I especially love how he painted ads that slide in over top of each work as I scroll down the page. When I arrived on the page, I immediately dismissed Mr Barlow as an artist because his blurry paintings were getting in the way of my ability to buy things, but then I was proved wrong as I was bludgeoned by links for satellite tv, high speed internet, and deals on the best restaurants in my city!

  2. i was quite taken aback by the work entitled "Ads by ISM - Premium Live TV-2-PC" as well as the more subtle "Ads by ISM - Any Audiobook for free!". Both are stunning in their own right, but it is the motion of the bottom pane of the painting and how the artist absolutely makes the pastel come alive and slide up the canvas revealing the painting name and sharply defined web address that says these apart from lessor pastel on canvas works. Bravo!

  3. These are absolutely beautiful. The colours and idea of movement really draws you in. I will definitely keep an eye out for any exhibitions. Thanks!

  4. I would never click on or buy anything from the advertisers on this page. Way too intrusive.
