What’s Weird? (1)
What’s Weird? is David’s first book, which collects 20 years of his work and brings to light over 100 paintings and hundreds of sketches and doodles unified by a unique style, unexpected characters, dark humor, and an appreciation of the absurd.

Funny and insightful comments about the pieces, written by the artist himself, pepper the book and provide a glimpse into the mind and unique creative process of this fascinating and highly prolific artist — while Kevin Barnes of “of Montreal” provides an intimate foreword. David Barnes has steadily developed a cult following over the past two decades and currently resides in Athens, Georgia.
