"STEPHEN APPLEBY-BARR is a painter and illustrator working in Toronto, Canada. A graduate of Sheridan College's illustration program, Appleby-Barr began producing zines under the imprint Tiger Press Books, with friend and fellow student, Lauchie Reid.
This collaboration soon grew into the foundation of the five-man art collective known as Team Macho, who have exhibited at Magic Pony since 2005
Documenting fictional fraternities and societies, Appleby-Barr's work explores archiving and preservation. A medium intrinsically associated with historical painting, Appleby-Barr lends his oil paintings a subversive and surprising edge, combining references to antique photographs with secret symbols and personal imaginings."
