Fall 2021 Visiting Artist
Erbriyon Barrett has been involved in artistic social and cultural awareness in Atlanta and the BLM
movement through his community-based and public artworks. Barrett goes by the name Cloud Cruiser. His public art murals can be seen throughout Atlanta and several cities in North
and South Carolina. His murals are on the official art tour of Atlanta Art Murals
in the city. Barrett has been showcased in two Atlanta Art Basel events in 2018 and
2019. His photography was showcased during the BLM protest in 2020. One of these images
will be featured on the cover of Tyrese Gibson vinyl release of Legendary ft. CeeLo Green.
His work is not only recognized in the arena of public art murals but also photography, film, performance and digital art. As a young black creative, he addresses the issues of investing in one’s self to build up confidence and visibility in what one does as an artist.
